French teenage striker M'Baye Niang says that he rejected an offer from Everton in the summer and joined AC Milan instead.

AC Milan striker M'Baye Niang has revealed that he rejected an offer from Everton in the summer.

The 17-year-old Frenchman joined the Italian club from French outfit Caen in August.

"Everton wanted me too, but I chose AC Milan and I am convinced of my decision," Niang told Sport Italia.

"Here at AC Milan all are kind with me. I'm the youngest and I pay respect to the whole group.

"I still have so much work to do and convince [coach Massimiliano] Allegri and I have to integrate well in Italian football."

Niang scored five goals in 30 Ligue 1 appearances for Caen last season.
