Salamon: Joining AC Milan a dream come true

The Poland Under-21 international is overjoyed with his move to the Serie A side, and is eager to get going at his new club and meet his team-mates
Promising youngster Bartosz Salamon has voiced his delight with his transfer from Brescia to AC Milan on deadline day of the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old, who can play both in midfield and in defence, signed a contract until June 2017 with the Rossoneri on Thursday, and is over the moon with his move to the Serie A giants.

"It's a dream come true to be a Milan player," he told Milan Channel.

"I used to be a midfielder but coach [Alessandro] Calori turned me into a centre-back. I like that position but if the coach asks me to, I can play in front of the defence as well.

"I don't know any of my new team-mates yet, but I'll meet them soon. Idols? None."

Salamon could make his official Milan debut in Sunday's league match against Udinese.
