Official: Torino sign Niang

Torino have officially confirmed the signing of Milan striker M’Baye Niang, on loan with obligation to buy.

The Frenchman had been told at the start of the summer he was surplus to requirements at San Siro, but opted not to make his loan move to Watford permanent.

He then infuriated the Rossoneri by turning down a lucrative move to Spartak Moscow, as he sough a reunion with Sinisa Mihajlovic.

It initially appeared that talks with the Granata had collapsed, but today they came in with an offer worth around €20m, and the deal has finally been completed.

"Torino Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of the the player M'Baye Niang, on loan with an obligation to buy," the statement from the Granata reads.
