Michael Essien: 'Medical is done'

Michael Essien reveals that he has got through a medical as his move to AC Milan draws closer.

Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has confirmed that he has passed a medical ahead of his move to AC Milan.

It had been reported that the first part of his examination with the Italian club's medical team had revealed a knee problem, which some had speculated could have thrown the deal into doubt.

However, the 31-year-old took to Twitter this afternoon to dispel the rumours.

"Haters will broadcast your failure but whisper your success. Medicals done, looking forward to start my new life with AC Milan," wrote the Ghana international.

It is believed that Essien will sign an 18-month deal at the San Siro.
