Milan forward M'Baye Niang is in talks over a season-long loan move to West Ham, according to the Daily Mail.

Niang, 19, spent the second half of the season out on loan at French side Montpellier, making 19 league appearances and scoring four times.

Born in Meulan-en-Yvelines in France, Niang turned out for Caen before switching to Milan in 2012.

The forward, who is predominantly used out wide, has since made 33 appearances for the Rossoneri.

A French Under-21 international, Niang was handed a suspended 18-month jail sentence for crashing his Ferrari into a tree at Montpellier's training ground.
