Robinho has signed a contract extension with AC Milan just days after a move to Santos fell through.

Robinho had hoped to return to the club where he started his career, and Milan were open to the deal to allow the player to move home to Brazil - but Santos pulled out of talks when it became clear they would not be able to finance the transfer.

The 29-year-old, who moved to Milan from Manchester City after also playing for Real Madrid, had fallen out of favour with Milan last season but has now committed his future to the club.

A statement published on acmilan.com read: "AC Milan announce that Robinho has extended his contract to June 30, 2016."
