Deportivo Coruna have signed Argentine international defender Fabricio Coloccini from Milan for an undisclosed fee, according to the Italian champions.

The 23-year-old, who has 11 caps, is believed to have signed a six-year deal.

He joined Milan from Boca Juniors in 1999 but was loaned out to Spanish clubs Alaves, Atletico Madrid and Villareal.

He returned to Milan this season but has remained a peripheral figure at the club.
