January 18, 2012

Lecce have announced the sale of midfielder Djamel Mesbah to AC Milan on a permanent transfer.

Algerian international Mesbah, 27, had been a target of the Rossoneri in recent months.

A statement from Lecce read: "Lecce announces it has sold Algerian midfielder Djamel Mesbah to AC Milan on a permanent transfer.

"In the same transaction, the Salentini club has brought to an end the loan move of midfielder Rodney Strasser, who returns to Milan, and acquired half of the sporting rights of striker David Speziale, who will wear the Lecce colours from next season.''

Mesbah joined Lecce in 2009 from Swiss side FC Luzern. He has scored one goal in 12 Serie A appearances for Lecce this season.
