Mbaye Niang has admitted that he wanted to make a move to Saint-Etienne from Rennes before talks broke down at the end of the week.
Speaking to L’Equipe, he said: ” It didn’t happen, I’m not going to start getting into the debates and wanting to argue. I am sad because I wanted to go there. I showed it by being there since Thursday. I was convinced by the project. I will now get my head back in Rennes. I hope it will be ok.”
