Valencia opened disciplinary proceedings against Rami last month after the 27-year-old criticised coach Miroslav Djukic and his team mates in an interview with Spanish radio and he was suspended for a week without pay.

"With the express permission of Valencia CF, Adil Rami underwent physical tests this afternoon at AC Milan's Milanello sports centre," Valencia said on their website.

The two clubs were negotiating the terms of the loan deal, they added, without specifying a time frame for its completion.
