Kaladze 'very happy' with Milan deal

The Georgian international defender Kakha Kaladze has renewed his contract with AC Milan until summer 2010.

Georgia defender Kakha Kaladze has renewed his contract with UEFA Champions League runners-up AC Milan until 2010.

No Chelsea agreement
With Kaladze's previous deal due to expire in 2006, the 27-year-old seemed to be on the verge of joining Chelsea FC earlier this month but the two clubs failed to reach agreement over his transfer fee.

'Very happy'
"I am a bit disappointed with the way the negotiations with Chelsea went," Kaladze said. "However, I am a Milan player and certainly I cannot complain about my current situation. I did not play as much as I wanted last season but I am very happy with this new contract."

Champions League winner
Kaladze moved to Milan in 2001 when the Rossoneri paid €16m to sign him from Ukrainian side FC Dynamo Kyiv. With Milan, the former FC Dinamo Tbilisi left-back won the European Champion Clubs' Cup and Coppa Italia in 2002/03 and the Scudetto the following campaign. Last season he played 19 Serie A matches and five in the Champions League.
