Yann M'Vila Willing To Stay On Wearside.
The 25-year-old has proven to be one of Sunderland's better signings and played well in this tough season after moving in from Rubin Kazan on a year's loan.
According to the Sunderland Echo, the Black Cats have the option to sign the player on a permanent deal.
His performances have made a few clubs sit up and take notice although it is Sunderland that would get the first grab.
M'Vila told the Sunderland Echo: 'It's important for me to sort out the contract issue with Rubin Kazan, but I have always said that my objective is to play in the Premier League.'
