Mavuba hints at Lille stay

Lille captain Rio Mavuba has poured cold water on speculation linking him with a summer move away from French Ligue 1.

The experienced midfielder is nearing the end of his current contract and he was widely expected to leave the club on a free transfer.

His former coach Rudi Garcia is determined to lure Mavuba to AS Roma, while few more high-profile sides are believed to be keen.

However, the 31-year-old has now suggested that he could extend his stay at Lille, even if he has yet to receive an offer from his current employers.

“I have spent many years here, it’s true that there is some stability, there is a kid who was born here. So I feel good here,” Mavuba told Radio Monte Carlo.

“We must study everything and see the project LOSC can offer me.”

The France international has spent last seven and a half years with les Dogues, having joined from Villarreal in January 2008.

He has since made 245 Ligue 1 appearances for the club, scoring five goals. Mavuba has earned 13 France caps, representing les Bleus at the 2014 World Cup.
