Talented youngster Andrea Petagna has signed a new contract with AC Milan.

The 18-year-old Italian shone for the Milan Primavera side during the 2012/13 season, and such form has led to him being promoted to the first team for the upcoming season.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani admitted that he was persuaded by Primavera manager, Milan legend Filippo Inzaghi, to keep the young striker at the club and not loan him out for the season.

Despite his promotion he will still be available for selection for second-string side Primavera during the 2013/14 campaign.

A statement on Milan's official website confirmed the news: "AC Milan announces that it has extended the contract of Andrea Petagna to June 30, 2018."

Petagna will not be the only youngster involved in the first team this season, with 18-year old Bryan Cristante set to be understudy to Nigel De Jong in midfield.

Petagna himself will replace Giampaolo Pazzini, who is currently missing through injury for the Rossoneri.

Petagna used social networking site Twitter to thank Milan for extending his contract.
