Milan set to loan Niang to Montpellier
Young AC Milan forward M'Baye Niang, 20, will join Montpellier on a six-month loan deal in January, according to different sources.
Montpellier, who are struggling in France's Ligue 1 and recently brought back Rolland Courbis as coach for a second spell, want Niang to cover for the injured Djamel Bakar.
Bakar is out for the rest of the season after suffering a serious knee injury last month.
France under-21 forward Niang, who started his career in Ligue 1 with Caen, has rarely featured for Milan this season.
