Midfielder Michael Essien trained with the AC Milan squad for the first time on Tuesday afternoon, just hours after his official presentation.

The Ghana international joined the Rossoneri squad which returned to training after the 2-1 win at Cagliari in the Serie A on Sunday.

Essien has signed an 18-month contract with the San Siro outfit on a free transfer after he was released by English side Chelsea.

He is now in contention to make his debut on Saturday when AC Milan host  Torino on Sunday in the Serie A.
