M'Vila hopes for Sunderland stay

Yann M'Vila wants to remain at Sunderland beyond the end of the season as long as the club retain their Premier League status.

M'Vila has impressed during his season-long loan from Russian club Rubin Kazan and his form has resulted in him being linked with several Premier League clubs.

Sunderland have the option to sign him on a permanent deal in the summer, but he has made it clear Sunderland would be his first choice, providing they avoid relegation to the Championship.

"It's important for me to sort out the contract issue with Rubin Kazan, but I have always said that my objective is to play in the Premier League," M'Vila told the Sunderland Echo.

"I want to stay here and play in the Premier League with Sunderland. Hopefully we will stay up and they will make me an offer, and then we can get around the table and talk and hopefully we can continue the adventure."

Regardless of what happens with Sunderland, M'Vila has no desire to return to Rubin Kazan.

"At the moment I am speaking with a lawyer. I think my contract with Rubin Kazan runs until December 2016, so there is still six months to run from the end of the season," he said.

"I don't really want to go back there and I don't really think they want me back, so we are trying to find a way of terminating that deal so I can be a free agent, and then I will be in a better position to discuss future offers."
