Valencia’s beleaguered centre-back Adil Rami will reportedly join AC Milan on loan for the remainder of the season with a permanent option to buy at the end of the campaign.

Valencia have suspended Rami without pay and are looking for a quick exit for the Frenchman with Milan being the likeliest of choices and according to Spanish sports daily AS the deal could be completed in a matter of house if all parties come to an agreement.

Rami considered joining Serie A side Roma to reunite with his former Lille manager Rudi Garcia but Milan offered more in terms of compensation.

Milan will take the cup-tied Rami on loan but the permenant purchase option while it will not be effective until the 2014 summer transfer window opens will be paid in advance.
