MILAN (AP) -- Morocco international Adel Taarabt is on the verge of joining AC Milan after landing in the Italian city for a medical.

Taarabt said Thursday that "I am honored to be able to play at the best club in the world. I spoke with (Milan coach Clarence) Seedorf and we are both happy."

Taarabt joins Milan on loan with the possibility of a permanent move in the summer.

Milan has taken over Fulham's loan of Taarabt from parent club Queens Park Rangers.

The 24-year-old joined Fulham after QPR was relegated from the Premier League.

Keisuke Honda, Adil Rami and Michael Essien also joined Milan this month.
