The 28-year-old joined Saint-Etienne at the start of the season after deciding to leave Russian side Rubin Kazan. He has since made 36 appearances in Ligue 1 and he is now back on the radar of several clubs across Europe.
According to L’Equipe, M’Vila is one of the players set to leave the club this summer and that will give West Ham a boost this summer. The Hammers are on the lookout for fresh legs in midfield and Saint-Etienne are willing to let him go, even though he is under contract until 2022.
