AC Milan have announced the signing of Aly Cissokho from Porto following a second medical.
A deal for the French full-back had looked to be in doubt after a dental problem raised concerns with the Rossoneri's staff.
However, after further examinations, they are now happy for the 21-year-old to complete his switch to Giuseppe Meazza.
Cissokho is currently on his way to Senegal to visit family but is expected to sign his new contract upon his return to Europe.
"I can confirm that I encountered some problems in my first physical," revealed the Porto full back.
"But then we did another test, a more detailed one, and everything went well.
"I have signed my pre-contract with Milan and now I am going on holiday to Senegal."
Reports suggest Milan have shelled out around £12.7million in order to land the talented youngster.
Meanwhile, having announced one new arrival, Milan have also revealed that Alberto Paloschi has been granted permission to extend his loan spell at Parma for another season.
The Italy U21 international spent the 2008/09 campaign at Stadio Ennio Tardini and helped the Gialloblu secure promotion back into the top flight.
"Keeping him was our primary objective," underlined Parma president Tommaso Ghirardi.
"We wanted to renew his co-ownership and that is what we have achieved.
"I have to thank [Milan vice-president Adriano] Galliani. He was hesitant over such an outcome at first, but he then gave me the opportunity to complete the deal.
"Milan have great faith in the player and I think they were initially keen to tie up an agreement for his return to their squad."
