Energetic midfielder Yann M’Vila has indicated that he won’t move away from Stade Rennais for at least 18 months as he believes another full season in Ligue 1 will help him hone his game further.
The tireless central player first broke into les Rouge et Noir’s first team at the beginning of the 2009-10 season, but such was his impact in Brittany that he was called into Raymond Domenech’s provisional World Cup squad. M’Vila didn’t ultimately make the cut, but he’s now a regular under Laurent Blanc and is attracting a good deal of attention from several of Europe’s biggest sides, including Liverpool, due to his all-round game.
“I am under contract with Stade Rennais until 2014,” M’Vila reminded France Football. “I'll be at Rennes next year. At the end of the season, I'll have had two full seasons in Ligue 1.”
Great maturity has been one of the hallmarks of the 20-year-old since breaking into the senior game, and he admits that he still has “much to learn”.
“Once I’ve scored I’ll leave!” he joked, referring to the fact that he has yet to find the net.
M’Vila impressed as Rennes drew with Olympique de Marseille in midweek, and his next assignment will be a home tie against Monaco on Saturday evening.
