Van Ginkel, 21, missed most of last season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury after arriving from Vitesse Arnhem in July 2013.

He has moved to Milan on a season-long loan deal, joining Spain striker Torres who left for the Italian club on Sunday on a two-year loan.

Van Ginkel has played for the Netherlands at under-15, under-19, under-21 and senior national level, winning two full caps.
