Everton will not renew interest in Niang

M`Baye Niang snubbed Everton in the summer in favour of joining AC Milan.

Some would argue that you could hardly blame a 17-year-old for choosing the San Siro over Goodison Park, but his decisions since his move have been more than questionable.

OK so he's young and he has a lot to learn, but some of his off the field antics do leave you wondering if he could just be someone set to waste his natural talent.

AC Milan have seemingly given up hope on him, just a few months into his three-year deal the Italian giants are wanting him out.

Not impressed by him being arrested for driving without a licence just one month after his move and then attempting to cover it up by pretending to be Bakaye Traore to police, the final straw was a recent night out to a club, the night before a crucial Under-21 qualifier with Norway.

Niang along with French team-mates Yann Mvila, Antoine Griezmann, Chris Mavinga, and Wissam Ben Yedder were all out on the Champs-Elysees and the team then went on to lose to Norway with them failing to qualify.

Everton previously agreed a 2million fee with Caen for Niang and the 17-year-old had been set to to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical before Milan matched our bid.

Milan would probably be happy to cut their losses after the hassle he has caused, but David Moyes according to The Echo is no longer interested in the young lad following his off-the-field troubles and instead is more likely to make a loan move for a more established midfielder.

How anyone can write a seventeen year old off is beyond me! Ok so he has done a couple of stupid things in his very young life, for ***** sake haven't we all! I for one would have him and probably on a free at that! I have personally seen loads of times where people have done really well for themselves after starting off on a bad note.

He would cost money, not sure how much Milan would want, but you would imagine at least the price they paid. I don't see Moyes going back in for the lad, Moyes isn't one to deal with attitude problems and off field issues, he wants players that are committed to the club and work ethic. Our priority should be a central midfielder, and all money should go towards that, if we have some change, then sure why not, if Moyes wants him. Also keep note of Matt Kennedy, the lad we signed from Kilmarnock in the summer, 18yr old, and from all accounts is impressing everyone with his performances in the reserve side.
