M’Villa ready for move to Premier League

Rennes midfielder Yann M'VillaRennes’ Yann M’Villa says he is ready for a switch away from the Stade de la Route de Lorient this January, piquing the interest of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, according to Sky Sports.

News of the midfielder’s desire to leave, once again, has sparked further speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League, with North London his likely destination.

M’Villa, a France international, has long been the centre of speculation relating to a potential move to England.

Comments like those of Marcel Desailly, who mentioned in April 2012 that the player is “better even than Patrick Vieria,” proved only to strengthen rumours of his many possible moves to the physically demanding Premier League.

The player, 22, who many see as ready for a move away from his homeland, could make the switch this January.

“I am at Rennes at the moment so let’s see what happens,” M’Vila reiterated.

“If the club receive a good offer and I like the destination then I will go, there is no doubt about that.

“Until that happens, nothing can be said.”

A switch to England is certainly likely with Spurs being strongly linked with the player in the past and Arsenal seemingly in need of a player possessing greater physical attributes than they currently have in the centre of midfield.

No approach has yet been made but M’Villa’s comments look set to reignite this discussion throughout January, intensifying talk of his Ligue 1 defection.
