Van Bommel: Has enjoyed his time in Italy
Mark van Bommel is hoping he will be given the opportunity to prolong his association with AC Milan.
The Dutch midfielder joined the Italian giants in January on a six-month deal, after allowing his contract at Bayern Munich to run down.
He has been a near ever-present for Milan following his arrival, helping the Rossoneri to land the Serie A title.
Van Bommel is now keen for his stay to be extended past the end of the season and admits he would be open to discussing a long-term agreement.
"The Italian league is a great league and it's very entertaining," he said.
"I feel great at Milan but it's not up to me, it's up to the club. If they ask me to stay, I won't know how to say no."
The 34-year-old Holland international has previously turned out for Fortuna Sittard, PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona and Bayern over the course of a distinguished career.
