AC Milan defender Luca Antonini has talked about his desire to make a move to the Premier League.

After making just eight appearances this season for the Rossoneri, the Italian was linked with a move to Russia in January and admits he would like to play elsewhere.

He told Sky Sport Italia: "I'd like to play abroad, especially in the Premier League.

"Russia? Yes it's true that there was something going on back in January, but now I want to get my shirt back."

After coming through the ranks at Milan, Antonini joined Sampdoria in 2007.  The Italian then signed for Empoli in 2008 before rejoining his boyhood club Milan just a year later.

Antonini was a valuable member of the Scudetto winning side in 2010-11, however, with just over a year left on his contract he looks set to leave in the summer.

He has never been capped at full international level for his country but was an unused substitute when Italy met Ivory Coast in 2010.

The left-back also disapproved of the behaviour shown by team-mate Stephen El Shaarawy after he was substituted in Sunday's 2-0 win over Palermo.

He added: "El Shaarawy was annoyed when he left the pitch yesterday against Palermo, and I don't know why.

"He decided to go directly into the dressing room instead of sitting on the bench, and that's not the right thing to do."
