AC Milan have loaned centre-back Oguchi Onyewu to Twente until the end of the season, the reigning Dutch champions have revealed.

The 28-year-old has passed a medical as he tries to rediscover his fitness and form after an injury-plagued 18 months in Milan.

Onyewu, who has won 51 international caps, was US footballer of the year in 2006.

He started his career with French side Metz and then played in Belgium, before a short spell with English side Newcastle United.
