Rennes tell Mbia he won't be leaving

RENNES, August 29 (Ligue 1) - Rennes have told Stephane Mbia he will not be allowed to leave the club to join Everton before the transfer window closes.

The Cameroon midfielder claims he is the subject of an offer from the English Premier League side, adding that he has held talks with their manager David Moyes.

But Rennes are determined to keep hold of the 22-year-old and have informed the player he will not be leaving the Route de Lorient.

'We have made Stephane understand that he will be staying at Rennes and he understood it,' said Pierre Dreossi, the general manager of the Brittany club.

'It is all sorted out.'

Mbia, who has just returned from Olympic Games duty in Beijing, did not play for Rennes in their UEFA Cup qualifier against Stabaek on Thursday and is still believed to be keen on completing the switch to Goodison Park.

If he did join Everton, he would be eligible to play for them in this season's UEFA Cup.
