    Chelsea have confirmed striker Andriy Shevchenko will rejoin AC Milan subject to a medical.

    A return to Milan has been speculated upon during much of Shevchenko's two years at Stamford Bridge and the Premier League club confirmed tonight he will make the move back to the San Siro.

    However, Chelsea and Milan have not yet disclosed details of the transfer or confirm whether the switch is a permanent move or loan switch. The Blues signed the Ukraine international in the summer of 2006 but he failed to live up to his reputation as the world's finest striker.

    The former Dynamo Kiev forward scored just four league goals in the 2006-07 campaign and five last season as injuries and form undermined his impact in west London.

    Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani told his club's television channel Shevchenko will undergo a medical on Monday.

    'After a series of frantic phone calls during the day today, we have reached an agreement with Chelsea,' he said.

    'Andriy returns to the Rossoneri, tomorrow he will be in Milan, Monday he will undergo a medical, then he will sign a contract and from Tuesday he will be available to Carlo Ancelotti.

    'We succeeded in bringing home the player who in the last 50 years has scored the most goals in our shirt.

    'President (Silvio) Berlusconi and I am happy, as is our coach and I believe also our players.

    'I believe that Milan are the only club in the world to have three European players of the year in our squad.'

    Galliani added: 'Andriy has returned home and I am happy about it. I am a Milan fan and I am very happy.

    'I've spoken to Andriy 48 times in the past three hours...the terms of the agreement are very private.

    'Between today and tomorrow Andriy will be at Milan and he will start again his life as a Milan player.

    'Andriy made a mistake in leaving and I believe that in the past two years he has realised that this is his home.

    'Now he has made his financial sacrifices but at this point the only thing that matters is that he returns to us.'
