Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli has insisted that striker Andre Silva will not be departing the club, despite a lacklustre start to his San Siro career.
The 22-year-old has managed better results in the Europa League, however, scoring eight times in 10 appearances.
"I know that Andre Silva is going through a difficult time, but he is a very important player for us," Mirabelli said.
"We have a special affection for him, he has a lot of talent and we want him to stay with us.
"Of course he's going to be [with us] in January and I'm sure he'll be with us for many, many years."
