ft OM – Iliman Ndiaye in OM, the British refuse

A promising Senegalese player in England, Iliman Ndiaye was on course for OM’s big success in the transfer window. However, his coach at Sheffield United has calmed the frenzy of Marseille fans over a potential transfer.

The story was very beautiful for OM and Iliman Ndiaye, but it could be in the fantasy world now. The young Senegalese striker, who has been an OM fan since his childhood, has been targeted by the Marseille club for a transfer this summer. It has to be said that Ndiaye shone in the Championship with Sheffield United, bringing the Blades back to the Premier League the following season. He didn’t disappoint with the national team either, with good entries into the World Cup in Senegal’s jersey. Enough to make him an excellent recruit for OM, especially since the player is set to come to La Canebière. However, things will not be so simple on the Sheffield side.

Ndiaye at OM is not on the agenda according to his manager

In fact, Paul Heckingbottom is not thinking of leaving Iliman Ndia for now. Sheffield United’s manager does not want to part with the goalscorer in this Saturday’s friendly at Chesterfield. After all, he says, contrary to media claims, OM have not officially committed themselves to the Senegalese striker for the time being. He hammered out these two ideas in front of the press after a friendly sparring.

No no [contact ou d’offres] As we speak. It’s no use talking about it. Everyone knows who Iliman is. Many interested clubs want to get Iliman, but he is our player. That’s it. He’s happy here, he loves being here. Who says [Marseille] Will they take Iliman if they leave? Just because this story picked up speed or someone wrote about it in France doesn’t mean nothing happened. Everyone wants him to stay. Everyone is working hard to get him to stay and sign a new contract. I would do anything to make him stay “, dropped Paul Heckingbottom. A real cold shower for Marseille supporters or a belated bluff from the English coach? We’ll soon find out, but it’s hard to say for now as OM are smart with their files in the transfer window.
