Paris:  French second-tier club Caen on Tuesday confirmed the sale of 17-year-old striker Mbaye Niang to Italian Serie A giants AC Milan.

The player has signed a three-year deal with the Rossoneri, with the transfer fee remaining undisclosed.

Niang, a French under-21 international, had also been linked with English Premier League clubs Arsenal -- with whom he spent time on trial earlier this summer -- and Everton.

He made his Ligue 1 debut with Caen aged 16 in April, 2011, and went on to make a total of 30 top-flight appearances, scoring five goals.
