Sunderland target Yann M’Vila has had a reputation as a bad boy – and reports from Moscow yesterday said that he trashed his rented house in the Russian capital.

The French international midfielder is in conflict with Dynamo Moscow, and the website LifeNews reported that the owner of the house and a cleaner who claimed the midfielder ransacked his lodgings before leaving, with his agent saying he had gone to stay with his French colleague William Vainqueur.

Capped 22 times by France, he has not played for his country since Euro 2012.

He was handed an 18-month ban from representing his country by the French Football Federation after taking part in an unauthorised night out while on under-21 duty late in 2012 and has also fallen out with boss Roberto Mancini while at Inter Milan.
