AC Milan completed the signing of teenage striker Philipp Prosenik from Chelsea on the last day of the winter transfer market on Tuesday.


Milan, along with Juventus and Bayern Munich, tried to sign the young Austrian in 2009, but Prosenik opted to join Chelsea's academy.

Prosenik started well in England but has had lengthy spells on the sidelines because of serious injuries.

The 18-year-old is the son of former Austria midfielder, Christian Prosenik.

Meanwhile, Bulgaria striker Valeri Bojinov has returned to Lecce on loan from Sporting.

Bojinov started his career at Lecce before moving to Fiorentina in 2005.

The 25-year-old had been suspended by the Portuguese club following his actions in a cup game against lower-league Moreirense.
