Antonee Robinson's move to AC Milan from Wigan falls through

Milan were set to pay £6m initial fee which could have risen to £10m
Antonee Robinson had already completed his medical with AC Milan
Wigan defender Antonee Robinson will remain at the DW Stadium after his move to AC Milan could not be completed.
The 22-year-old defender travelled to Milan on Friday morning after the two clubs agreed an initial fee of £6m which could have risen to £10m for the permanent transfer.
The USA international underwent a medical examination on Friday, though further medical tests with the Italian authorities were required, which were subject to a 72-hour deadline.
Because of the restrictions, the deal could not be formally ratified before the 8pm (7pm UK time) Italian transfer deadline on Friday. 
With one hour left in the Italian transfer window, Sky in Italy revealed the move had hit a snag with Milan recalling left-back Diego Laxalt, on loan at Torino, as a precaution in case the deal didn't go through Wigan bought Robinson only last summer for less than £2m from Everton and has made 30 appearances for the Latics this season. The Milton Keynes-born defender is a full USA international, having made his debut in 2018. If the deal had gone through, Robinson would have also provided back-up to first-choice left-back Theo Hernandez, who has scored six goals in 19 appearances this season.
