AC Milan have today announced that M’baye Niang will be departing to Watford and will be plying his trade in the Premier League for the rest of the season at least.

AC Milan announces to have agreed terms with Watford FC for the transfer of the player M'Baye Niang on a loan deal until 30th June 2017 with option to buy.

The deal will be an initial loan deal to the Hornets who occupy the 14th position in the Premier League table this season. Niang, who is valued at around €14 million will be initially leaving on a paid loan of €1 million. In total, if Niang is purchased at the end of his loan contract, then Milan will be making a pretty profit.

It is clear that Milan need to shift players in order to buy players and despite the loan signing of Deulofeu (a right-winger), they are now a left-winger down. It’s time for them to go shopping!
