Watford attacker M'Baye Niang has told Sky Sports News HQ that he wants to leave the club and return to AC Milan.

The 22-year old joined the Hornets on loan from the Serie A club in January with the deal expected to become permanent next month.

But Niang, whose Milan contract expires this summer, says a number of reasons have caused a desire to return to Italy, most recently head coach Walter Mazzarri's departure.

Niang - French U21 international - scored on his second Premier League appearance against Burnley in February but he has scored just once since against West Brom in April.

He headed straight down the tunnel when he was substituted against Chelsea on Monday Night Football.

Niang has played 15 times for Watford, helping them secure their premier league survival.
