I was just about to post this. I thought he'd get a good deal after his performance at the Confederations Cup, but I didn't expect Milan.
Milan sign Onyewu
Tuesday 7 July, 2009
Milan have made American centre-back Oguchi Onyewu their first signing of the summer amid protests from the fans.
The 27-year-old of Nigerian origin who also just happens to have a Belgian passport, has left Standard Liege and put pen to paper on a three-year deal.
Onyewu came to Milan's attention at the Confederations Cup where the USA reached the Final only to be beaten by Brazil.
He has also played for Newcastle and Metz.
The signing might placate Milan's fans, who gathered at the club's training ground yesterday to protest against the Rossoneri's lack of activity in the transfer market.
