MILAN (AP) - Struggling AC Milan has reportedly reached a deal to acquire France center back Adil Rami on loan from Valencia in January.

The Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Milan will pay 400,000 euros ($540,000) for the loan then have the option to pick up Rami's full rights for 6 million euros ($8.15 million) at the end of the season.

Rami is suspended by Valencia for one week without pay for insulting his coach and teammates in a radio interview last month. Rami has not played for Valencia since the interview and Milan is hoping he can begin training in Italy even before January.

A 3-2 loss to Juventus last weekend left Milan 13 points behind Serie A leader Roma in a tie for 12th with promoted Livorno.
