Asmir Begović has officially joined the Rossoneri until the end of the season.

Pepe Reina has officially left the club to get some playing time at Aston Villa for the next six months, and this evening the club has announced that Begović has joined the ranks of Stefano Pioli.

The 32-year-old Begović, who previously played for Stoke City and Chelsea, will take the role of G. Donnarumma’s substitute.

“Milan is delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Asmir Begović from AFC Bournemouth on a temporary basis until June 30, 2020,” a statement on the club’s website reads.

“Begović, born in Trebigne (Bosnia-Erzegovina) on June 20, 1987, started his professional career with Portsmouth FC. He has also spent time playing at RAA Louviéroise, Macclesfield Town FC, AFC Bournemouth, Yeovil Town FC, Ipswich Town FC, Stoke City FC, Chelsea FC, and Qarabag FK.

“He made his début with the Bosnian national team in 2009 and has recorded, so far, 62 appearances including 3 during the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 5 as captain.

“Begović will join his new teammates tomorrow (January 14th) and will speak to the media on Thursday, January 16th. The press conference will be aired live on the Club’s TV Channel Milan TV and on the AC Milan Official App.”
