Dhorasoo makes Milan move

AC Milan have signed midfield player Vikash Dhorasoo on a free transfer from Olympique Lyonnais.
Newly crowned Italian champions AC Milan have signed French midfield player Vikash Dhorasoo on a free transfer.

Serie A move
The 30-year-old announced last month that he was leaving the reigning Ligue 1 title-holders in the summer when his present contract expired. Dhorasoo, a French international, has agreed a deal that will keep him at the San Siro until 2006.

Success
Dhorasoo arrived in Lyon in summer 1998 from Le Havre AC. He has enjoyed a successful time at the Stade Gerland, apart from a season-long loan at FC Girondins de Bordeaux in 2001/02, when he helped them win the French League Cup.

Excellent form
He had earlier picked up a winner's medal in the same competition with Lyon and on returning from Bordeaux, played his part in Lyon's Ligue 1 title triumph last term. This season, Dhorasoo has figured in 27 league matches for Lyon to help them to first place in the table with just four games remaining. He also played eight times in this season's UEFA Champions League, where Lyon reached the quarter-finals.
