Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-yueng looks set to leave the Welsh club this summer, and could be heading to Italy to join European footballing giants AC Milan.

Bookmakers Bet Victor have made the San Siro club clear favourites to sign the South Korea captain, who suffered relegation with Swansea this season.

It was a poor season for the Swans, and their relegation was confirmed on the final day of a long Premier League season after they were defeated by already relegated Stoke City.

Because of their relegation, many players are expected to leave the Welsh side this summer in order to stay in the top flight, and it seems that Ki Sung-Yueng will be swapping England for Italy.

AC Milan are 2/1 to sign the Swansea midfielder, with West Ham United and Stoke City also in the mix with odds of 6/1 and 10/1 respectively.

Ki-Sung-yueng moved to the United Kingdom back in 2009, joining Celtic from FC Seoul for a fee reported to be £2.1 million.

The Korean enjoyed three years in Scotland, playing 66 times for the Scottish giants and scoring nine goals.

His performances at Celtic attracted interest from south of the border, and he decided to move to Swansea City in 2012 for a fee believed to be in the region of £6 million.

His first few years at Swansea City were a struggle, and he was loaned to Sunderland for the 2013/14 season.

Upon returning to the Swans, Ki Sung-yueng found himself in the plans of Garry Monk, and has been a first team regular ever since then.

Ki Sung-Yueng is part of the South Korea squad for this summer’s World Cup, and he will look to make his 100th appearance for his native side in Russia.
