Niang never wanted Foxes move

AC Milan forward M'Baye Niang insists he was always committed to staying put after a January move to Leicester failed to materialise.

The 21-year-old was a target for the Foxes during the mid-season transfer window and they reportedly saw a bid rejected by the Rossoneri.

The Premier League high flyers chose not to follow up their interest in Niang, who has gone on to score in each of his last three games for Milan.

The Caen youth product is adamant his heart had been set on seeing out the campaign at the San Siro from the start and he does not regret his decision.

"Staying with Milan was the right choice," Niang told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "I never thought about leaving.

"People thought I was already on my way to Leicester to sign, but I only had Milan in my head.

"I told [Milan general manager Adriano] Galliani, the coach and everybody. Milan are the team I wanted to finish the season with."
