Luiz Adriano, ex-Shakhtar Donetsk, signs five-year deal with AC Milan

AC Milan have announced the signing of striker Luiz Adriano.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk man put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at the San Siro until 2020, according to the club.

Adriano, who finished the 2014-15 Champions League campaign with nine goals, was reported to have an agreement in place to join Qatari-based club Al Ahli. But the Rossoneri have beaten them to the former Brazil international's signature.

The 28-year-old, who joined Shakhtar from Internacional in 2007, has won six Ukrainian Premier League titles, four Ukrainian Cups and the 2009 UEFA Cup during his time with the club.

He broke a number of Champions League records in October's 7-0 win away to BATE Borisov, becoming the first player to score four goals in the first half of a game as well as scoring the fastest hat trick in the competition.

The news comes on the heels of Milan announcing the addition of another summer striker, Colombian Carlos Bacca, who is set to join the club from Sevilla pending a medical.

Milan are looking to strengthen their squad after two disappointing campaigns.

The Rossoneri finished 10th in Serie A last season and will miss out again on European football after finishing eighth the previous year.

As a result, Milan sacked coach Filippo Inzaghi and appointed former Sampdoria boss Sinisa Mihajlovic as his replacement.
