French international Yann M'Vila has committed his future to Rennes, ending speculation of a big-money move to England or Spain.

The 20-year-old has been in fine form for the Ligue 1 outfit since signing for the club in 2009 and even forced his way into the French international set-up at the start of last season.

Real Madrid and Liverpool have been linked with a big-money summer move for M'Vila, who now has 10 international caps, despite the midfielder signing a contract extension until 2015 last month.

However, M'Vila has quashed any transfer rumours as he believes he is better off continuing his development in France as that gives him the best chance of playing at next year's European Championship.

"I want to play in the European Championship and I think the best thing is to continue at Rennes," M'Vila told Marca.

"At my age a lot of players would have gone [abroad] to earn more money but I want to continue my development with a coach that knows me well."
