PSG strike Dhorasoo deal

Vikash Dhorasoo is to return to France after Paris Saint-Germain FC agreed to sign the midfielder from AC Milan.
Paris Saint-Germain FC have announced an agreement with AC Milan to sign French international midfielder Vikash Dhorasoo.

Two-year deal
The 31-year-old, capped seven times, is to sign a deal running until summer 2007 on Wednesday, 12 months after leaving Olympique Lyonnais for Milan. The ex-Le Havre AC and FC Girondins de Bordeaux player won two French titles with Lyon, but made only 12 Serie A appearances last season and has opted to leave the San Siro with a year remaining on his contract.

PSG statement
"PSG, AC Milan and Vikash Dhorasoo have reached an agreement for a two-season contract," the Ligue 1 side said. "The international midfielder will officially become a PSG player after a medical. After the signings of [Christophe] Landrin, [Bonaventure] Kalou and David Rozehnal, PSG welcome another key player." No fee has been revealed.

'Excellent news'
Dhorasoo's new coach Laurent Fournier added: "It is excellent news for the club, players and fans. A very experienced French international joins the squad and will pull everybody up." Ninth in France last term, PSG will not compete in European competition in 2005/06.
