Everton and Sheffield United linked forward Iliman Ndiaye wants to stay with the French outfit Marseille.


The 23-year-old centre-forward played a key role in helping Sheffield United get back to the Premier League last season, but they could not hold on to him.


This summer, the Blades agreed a £20m deal with Marseille for Ndiaye, who was keen on joining the French outfit.




However, the centre forward has failed to impress in Marseille colours and has scored only one goal in 15 games.


It is suggested that Marseille might look to offload Ndiaye in the January transfer window and he has an admirer in the Premier League in the form of Everton.



Sheffield United owner Prince Abdullah has also refused to rule out a return for the Senegalese forward to Bramall Lane in the January window.


However, according to French outlet La Tribune (via Le 10 Sport), Ndiaye is not interested in a January move and wants to stay with Marseille.



Whether the Everton and Sheffield United target will change his stance later in this month’s transfer window remains to be seen.
