Latest on Iliman Ndiaye’s future Alan Nixon reports

There is still uncertainty about Iliman Ndiaye’s future amid interest from Olympique Marseille and the Senegalese international is in the final year of his contract.

Fabrizio Romano and L’equipe have broken several reports over the past couple of weeks stating that Iliman Ndiaye has agreed on a contract with his boyhood club, however, contrary to the reports, the club or player has not been formally approached by the French team.

According to Alan Nixon, Ndiaye is willing to extend his contract at Sheffield United. The Blades want a £35m release clause inserted into the contract, which would decrease if relegated. But the player is wanting the release clause to be lowered slightly. These fresh details emerge after his family persuaded him to remain with United.

United are pushing and hoping the 23-year-old will agree to new terms; Ndiaye is a huge asset for the club so losing him for nothing, next summer, would be a massive blow.

Ndiaye made a huge leap from his first campaign with the Blades to his second one, where he registered 14 goals and 10 assists in 46 Championship appearances [FBref]. He will have to make another giant stride this season if Sheffield United want to stay in the Premier League.
