M’Vila, 24, joined Inter Milan from Rubin Kazan in August on a season-long loan, but has since made just eight appearances in Serie A for a total of 247 minutes.
Inter have now agreed to cut his stint at the San Siro short but, with Rubin having no interest in taking him back, a move elsewhere for the second half of the campaign looks to be on the cards.
Both QPR and West Brom are now said to be the front-runners for his signature, with agent Fabrizio Ferrari telling Tuttomercatoweb.com this week: “[We’re] discontinuing the agreement. Inter must solve the paperwork, but he'll go away.
“There's a lot of interest, especially in England, I think there will be a transfer over the week."
Swansea are also among the interested parties, according to the Telegraph, with M’Vila himself said to be keen on a move to the Premier League.
A former Ligue 1 star with Rennes, the likes of the Mirror have also named Arsenal as long-time admirers, but Arsene Wenger is said to have shelved his interest because of the 22-times capped Frenchman’s reputation, which saw him banned from the national team after an unauthorised night out.
Nevertheless, M’Vila would no doubt be a worthwhile addition for a number of Premier League clubs given his undoubted talent, with a loan deal attaching little risk to a potential move.
