Rennes coach Pierre Dreossi says Yann M’Vila has likely played his last game for the French team, and will finalise his transfer on Monday.
M’Vila came on shortly before Rennes scored their second goal in a 2-0 win over Bastia on Sunday, but then gave away a late penalty that was not converted.
The midfielder has been strongly linked with a 10 million-euro move to QPR, but there might still be interest from other Premier League sides.
Speaking to reporters, Dreossi confirmed a move was close to being finalised, saying: “There is a good chance that this is the last game Yann M’Vila will play for Rennes.”
M’Vila has regularly been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past couple of years, with Tottenham and Fulham still possible challengers to QPR in the hunt for the midfielder.
Disciplinary issues are believed to have hindered a potential move for the player in the past, with M’Vila currently banned from the French national team until June 2014 after an unauthorised night out while on Under-21 duty.
