Yann M’Vila Says He’s Heartbroken After Sunderland Ignored His Calls

Yann M’Vila Says He’s Heartbroken After Sunderland Ignored His Calls

Yann M’Vila says he’s heartbroken after his transfer to Sunderland collapsed at the last minute on deadline day.

The French midfielder was popular with Black Cats fans during his loan spell last season, but returned to Rubin Kazan at the end of the campaign with no permanent deal agreed.

It looked like he’d remain with the Russian outfit too until news of a potential deal broke earlier today, with M’Vila arriving at London Heathrow earlier today ahead of completing his permanent transfer.

Heartbreak

Unfortunately for M’Vila, no deal has been completed before the 11pm deadline – which means he will have to remain a Kazan player until his contract expires in January.

And the Frenchman has since taken to Instagram to share his sadness that he’s missed out on a Sunderland return:

That Instagram story has since been deleted by M’Vila – although it’s unclear exactly why he got rid of the message so soon after posting.

Sunderland fans aren’t very happy about the breakdown of the move either, with one fan making an edit to M’Vila’s Wikipedia page which doesn’t reflect well on the club’s hierarchy:

The entry says Sam Allardyce was keen to make the move permanent, but chairman Ellis Short “is a pipe and could not secure the move”.
