Yann M'Vila unsure over his future at Sunderland

Sunderland Gates

Yann M'Vila has made a positive impression at Sunderland since signing during the summer transfer window.

Sunderland midfielder Yann M’Vila has told the Sunderland Echo that he is in the dark over his future.

The Black Cats signed M’Vila on loan from Rubin Kazan during the summer transfer window, and they have an option to keep him at the club on a permanent basis if they stay in the Premier League, according to the Sunderland Echo.

However, the French midfielder says he has no idea whether he will extend his stay at the Stadium of Light, with his focus solely on the short-term for the time being.

“No, I’m not thinking about the future,” he said. “I really don’t know what will happen next summer.

“For me the most important thing was to play football and above all, help Sunderland as much as possible to a better position.”

M’Vila has been a huge hit at Sunderland since signing, with his performances having being largely positive so far.

The 25-year-old has been an imposing presence in Sunderland’s midfield, and he has arguably been their most consistent performer this season.

Unfortunately for M’Vila, many of his fellow new recruits haven’t made such a promising start to life on Wearside.

Sunderland have struggled over the course of the campaign to date, and they have been able to claim just one win from their opening 12 Premier League matches – leaving them in the thick of a relegation battle.
