AC Milan have confirmed that they will sign France international Jeremy Menez on a three-year deal following the expiration of his current contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

Menez, who had been linked with interest from Liverpool and Arsenal earlier this year, will complete his switch to the San Siro on July 1.

The 27-year-old winger has been a PSG player since moving to Paris from AS Roma in August 2011.

He made 79 Ligue 1 appearances for the French champions, scoring 14 goals.

Menez played just 16 league games this season, including nine as a substitute. He scored two goals and provided one assist.

He has represented France 24 times at senior level, but he was not selected in Didier Deschamps’ 23-man squad for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

Milan will be the fifth club of Menez’s senior career, after Sochaux, AS Monaco, Roma and PSG.

Filipo Inzaghi will be Milan manager next season, having replaced Clarence Seedorf, who was sacked earlier this week after just five months in charge.

Milan finished eighth in Serie A this term, meaning that they will not be in the Champions League or the Europa League next season.

The club have not gone a season without continental football since the 1998-99 campaign.
