MILAN (AP) — Colombia international Pablo Armero is on the verge of completing a move to AC Milan, with the deal subject to a medical.

Armero flew into Milan on Monday and the club says he will undergo tests over the next two days.

The 27-year-old defender says "I am coming into a great squad, I want to earn my place here and do well."

Armero played in all four of Colombia's matches at the World Cup and scored his country's first goal in the opening match against Greece.

Armero moved from Udinese to Napoli on loan in January 2013, with the two clubs agreeing a co-ownership deal that summer.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham before Udinese bought out Napoli's share of the player in June.
