Announced on his departure at the start of the summer, M’Baye Niang is still at Stade Rennais, while there are only two weeks left before the transfer window closes. The 2019 African vice-champion is not short of solicitations, but the offers he receives do not tempt him. There was one from West Bromwich, the club newly promoted to the English top flight. The Rouge et Noir striker immediately let his Rennes managers know that he was not interested.
Niang left to stay in Rennes?
Aged 25, Niang is under contract with Les Rouge et Noir until 2023. He had expressed himself a few months ago by indicating that if he left, it would only be for a higher challenge. Olympique de Marseille had approached him, but ended up abandoning the track due to a transfer fee deemed too expensive. As a reminder, Niang has already played in the English championship. And it was not a great success. In 2016/17, he was loaned by AC Milan to Watford. With the Hornets, he played 16 games and scored 2 goals.
