Ivory Coast and AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie have officially spoken about the reports and rumours linking him with a move away from his Italian club.
Sometime last week, Milan Live reported that the Ivorian will be leaving the San Siro during the winter transfer window and that English clubs Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United are battling it out with each other to sign him. But the 22-year-old has now put to rest all those rumours by claiming he will not be leaving the club in January or any time soon.
Speaking to the media, Kessie said: “If I wanted to leave, I would have already done it. I want to stay here for many years, a team that I’ve been supporting since I was a child. For me it’s a dream come true and I’ll always give my best for these colours.”
The Ivorian midfielder is one of the midfielder in Europe that has been continuously linked with a move to the Premier League as he is said to have the technical ability and strength for the League. The Ivorian has been formerly linked with a move to Everton some seasons ago, but this time West Ham and Wolves are the clubs interested of which he will have no worries adapting to should a signing be made possible.
As the age is slowly catching up to midfielder Mark Noble, the skipper might just need to be replaced after enjoying a long stay with his favourite club. The Hammers are currently struggling in the English top-flight and a face in the midfield might just be what they want to change their poor form into a better one.
While Wolves have been formidable in the league as always but will be needing to replace Joao Moutinho like Noble is also ageing slowly.
