The Denmark international made five Serie A appearances and enjoyed one Champions League outing with Atalanta, but has now joined its Italian rival.

Sevilla, the club Kjaer moved to from Fenerbahce in 2017, confirmed the switch in a brief statement on Monday, revealing a purchase option that will come into force at the end of the season.

Milan boss Stefano Pioli will hope Kjaer can provide a boost to his flagging side, who sit 10th in the table.

The San Siro club have been buoyed by the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored in Sunday's (AEDT) 2-0 victory over Cagliari to snap a three-game winless streak.
