Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Norway international Jens Petter Hauge arrival at AC Milan is imminent following direct contacts yesterday. Milan will acquire the young winger on a permanent deal from FK Bodo/Glimt and will join immediatley (not in the winter transfer window as was a reported option).

Calcio Mercato are reporting that the fee will be 5 million euros and note that the medicals and contract signing would be completed today or tomorrow. The 20 year old impressed Stefano Pioli and Paolo Maldini last week on Thursday in the Europa League fixture against Milan where he scored scored one goal and provided one assist.

Antonio Vitiello is reporting that an agreement has been found and that medicals would not be today but tomorrow morning as he will arrive late.

The winger was pictured at the airport on his way to Milan to complete the deal. He spoke to Aftenposten and said, “Of course you look forward to playing with Zlatan. He has been in the “game” for a long time and I will try and learn. I have followed him and looked up to him. If I get a career that is half as big as his, I will be happy.”
