Sunderland close in on M'Vila

Sunderland are close to agreeing a deal to sign France midfielder Yann M'Vila from Rubin Kazan, according to reports in France.

L'Equipe are reporting that talks between the player and the club are at an advanced stage and the holding midfielder is close to signing for the Black Cats.

The 25-year-old is set to leave Rubin Kazan and he has been training with Dynamo Moscow and played in a friendly last month, but Sunderland are now believed to be in pole position.

M'Vila has got 22 caps for France but was banned for playing for the national team until June 2014 after an unauthorised night out in November 2012 and he has not played for the national side since.

He was highly-rated a few years ago and Arsenal were reportedly tracking the former Rennes man, who moved to Rubin for 12million euros in January 2013.

That move has not worked out for M'Vila and he signed on loan for Inter Milan last summer with an option to sign permanently, but Inter decided not to exercise that option and he returned to Russia in January this year.

M'Vila does have two years to run on his Rubin contract but his future looks to lie elsewhere with Dick Advocaat all set to pounce.
