Rennes happy to let M'Vila leave

Rennes have declared their willingness to help talented but troubled midfielder Yann M'Vila leave the club this January.

The France international, 22, has seen his star wane in the last year with a number of disciplinary issues tarnishing his previously burgeoning reputation. However, the defensive midfielder still has the sort of ability which attracts suitors, and Rennes are keen to help him move on as long as the money is right.

"It's possible [he'll leave] if we get some interesting offers," the club's general manager, Pierre Dreossi, told radio station RMC. "He wants to leave, but if it doesn't happen, it will be next summer. It's no catastrophe. He missed out on a transfer last summer. If there's an interesting opportunity for everyone, we'll find a solution."

Interest in M'Vila cooled before the last transfer window, following his role in a tempestuous Euro 2012 for the French national side before he was banned from appearing for his country at any level until July 2014 after being in a group of five players who took a taxi from the Normandy coast to a Paris nightclub while on duty with the Under-21s in October.

The Amiens-born player was even sanctioned by his club, along with team-mate Chris Mavinga, following the incident with the pair, being ordered to train with the reserve team for more than a week. Since returning to the first-team fold, M'Vila, who joined Rennes in 2004, has kept his head down.

"We're happy, he's coming back [to form]," Dreossi said. "He's done some silly things, but he's come through here. He listens, he doesn't show that he wants to leave, but if a chance comes along, he'll take it."
