Nancy midfielder Bakaye Traore has confirmed he will be joining AC Milan in the summer after reportedly attracting interest from the Premier League.
The Mali international is out of contract at Nancy and he had been linked with the likes of Aston Villa, Everton and Sunderland after impressing for club and country.
However, Traore has now agreed a three-year contract with Milan and he is looking forward to the chance to play for the Serie A giants.
"I am delighted to finally announce that I'm going to sign for Milan," Traore said to RMC Radio.
"It is an incredible feeling. I am signing for one of the top clubs in the world.
"I know there will be a lot of competition to play, which is only normal, but the motivation is there to continue to grow."
The 27-year-old joined Nancy from Amiens in 2009 and has scored five goals in 20 league matches for the Ligue 1 outfit this season.
