AC Milan have signed USA international defender Oguchi Onyewu from Belgian side Standard Liege. The 27-year-old centre-half registered on the Rossoneri's radar after an impressive Confederations Cup campaign in South Africa last month. Onyewu, who has played in the Premier League with Newcastle United and with Metz in France, has moved to San Siro on a free transfer as he was out of contract. "AC Milan would like to inform that they have signed Oguchi Onyewu on a permanent basis from Standard Liege," confirmed a club statement. "The USA international has signed until June 30, 2012."
