Updated: 

AC Milan have announced that midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura has extended his contract at the club until 2020.

The 27-year-old has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal to commit his future to San Siro until the end of the 2019-2020 campaign.

Bonaventura has played a key role in Milan's progress under Vincenzo Montella this season, having only missed two games in all competitions, while he scored the equaliser before converting in the penalty shootout as they beat Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana in December.

The Italy international, who signed from Atalanta for a reported fee of EUR7million in 2014, has scored four goals and registered six assists in 19 matches this season.
