Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer has signed a new long-term deal with the reigning Serie A champions that runs through until June 2027.

The 25-year-old joined Milan from Empoli in July 2019 and has made 129 appearances for the club.

He has featured in all 24 of the Rossoneri’s matches this season – one of only two ever-presents along with Pierre Kalulu.

Bennacer’s contract had been due to expire at the end of next season, but Milan technical director Paolo Maldini confirmed this week a new deal was close to being finalised.

Milan announced on their official website on Thursday that the Algeria international is now under contract for another four and a half years.

Stefano Pioli’s side, who are seven points adrift of leaders Napoli, are also hopeful of tying down Rafael Leao amid reported interest from a host of top clubs.
