Ghana striker Dominic Adiyiah is edging close for a place in the AC Milan first team after securing the work permit to play in the country.


  The youngster will join the club's training for the first time on Tuesday after arriving in the country on Monday morning.

His arrival in Milan is a fresh start for his career as he seeks to impress coach Leonardo and also secure a his Ghana World Cup spot.

"This is a new journey for and I am going out there to do my very best for AC Milan," Adiyiah told

"I know this will have a bearing on my national team prospects and I know the only solution is hard work.

"I am going to work in force full and full determination to be successful. I am confident I will succeed."

Adiyiah joined the Serie A giants after emerging as the best player and top scorer at the U20 World Cup in Egypt late last year.

His deal was only ratified last month when the transfer window opened in Europe, completing his switch from Norwegian side Fredrikstad.

But he was not able to join them because he was on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.

With the Black Stars finishing second in the continental tournament it paved the way for him to apply for his permit to play in Italy.

The Italian   Embassy in Accra have approved his permit enabling him to travel to the country to start his Serie A career.

AC Milan have good plans for the Ghanaian youngster as they have already turned down an offer from Spanish side Celta Vigo who wanted him on loan.
