        Former Sunderland midfielder returning to England

        West Brom close to signing Yann M'Vila

        It has been reported by Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna that West Bromwich Albion are in advanced negotiations over the signing of midfielder Yann M’Vila on a free transfer.

        It is believed that The Baggies could announce the signing of the former Sunderland midfielder on a deal until the end of the season as soon as over the weekend.

        The 33-year-old has been without a club since he departed Greek Super League giants Olympiacos last summer, following a three-year stint in Piraeus.

        West Brom are known to be cash strapped at the moment but Carlos Corberan, who coached M’Vila at Olympiacos last season, has worked wonders to have them tucked inside the top six and the playoff places in the Championship. 

        M’Vila, who has been capped 22 times by France and was a part of the squad that reached the quarter-finals of UEFA EURO 2012, began his career in 2007 in the Rennes B team system before moving up to the first-team in 2009.

        He joined Rubin Kazan in 2013 and spent five years contracted to the Russian Premier League club but spent time on loan at Internazionale and Sunderland during that spell. He moved back to France in 2018 when he signed for Saint-Etienne before heading to Olympiacos in September 2020.

        If a deal does go through over the weekend, the two-time Greek champion could make his West Brom debut when they host Cardiff City at The Hawthorns on Tuesday evening.

He may be 33 years old, but his experience and talent could be a valuable addition to the squad. Plus, his former coach Carlos Corberan has worked wonders with the team so far. Looking forward to seeing M'Vila in the Baggies shirt!
