Liege loan move for Kaka's younger brother

August 14, 2008

Standard Liege have secured the signing of AC Milan defender Digao on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old centre-half is the younger brother of Brazilian striker Kaka and was unveiled at the Stade Maurice Dufrasne on Wednesday.

Since signing from Sao Paulo in 2004, Digao has made just two appearances for the Rossoneri and spent two seasons on loan at Serie B side Rimini Calcio.

He is the second defender to leave the San Siro this week, following Dario Simic's move to Monaco.
