AC Milan’s Official Statement on Diego Laxalt’s move to FK Dinamo Moscow

AC Milan have confirmed in an official statement this afternoon that Diego Laxalt will leave the club to sign for FK Dinamo Moscow on 1 July. The Uruguayan left back was on loan at Celtic last season but the club decided against making the move permanent. Laxalt started well in the Hoops, with a notably strong performance in the 2-2 dear away to Lille in the Europa League. he scored one goal at Easter Road against Hibs but was an erratic defender and his distribution in attacking areas was sub-standard.
