Milan complete signing of Honda from CSKA

Keisuke Honda has joined AC Milan on a free transfer from PFC CSKA Moskva, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract and saying "they are a legendary club".

Keisuke Honda has joined UEFA Champions League contenders AC Milan on a free transfer from PFC CSKA Moskva.

The 27-year-old midfielder, who has scored 20 goals in 52 appearances for Japan, has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal after his contract with the Russian club expired at the end of December.

"I'm looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and cannot wait to get started," Honda told Milan TV after landing in Italy on Saturday evening. "I have a lot to give and to offer the team. I've been waiting for today for a long time and it's a dream come true. Milan are a legendary club and I supported them as a child."

Honda moved to CSKA in January 2010 from Dutch side VVV-Venlo. In four years with the Army Men he netted 19 times in 94 top-flight outings, helping them to the 2012/13 Premier-Liga title, two Russian Cups and one domestic Super Cup.

The former Nagoya Grampus player will wear the No10 shirt and could be available for selection for the Rossoneri's Serie A game against US Sassuolo Calcio on 12 January.
