AC Milan forward M’Baye Niang has all but confirmed that he would like to remain at Stade de la Mosson beyond the current season.
The talented footballer joined the Ligue 1 side on loan in search of first team football and he has shown some promise this season.
And despite club president Louis Nicollin rejecting claims that Niang’s loan deal would be extended, the player himself appears ready to stay.
“This is a family club, where I want to repay the confidence they have shown me,” the forward explained to Montpellier based newspaper Midi Libre.
Niang had a bright start to his career at Montpellier, scoring 4 goals in first 6 matches, but he has failed to get on the scoresheet in last seven appearances for the club.
The French forward opted to leave Caen for AC Milan in the summer of 2012, and he made no less than 28 Serie A appearances in total for the Rossoneri, but has failed to score a single goal.
