The France international only joined the Tartistan outfit in the summer of 2013 after being tempted by the outstanding financial package that had been put together to tempt him out east.

However, he has consistently been linked with a return to western Europe, but the speculation mooting him with a move to Liverpool came to nothing.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had been keen to add the defensive midfielder to his midfield unit, but M’Vila was warned off a switch by Rubin coach Ribat Bilyaletdinov.

But though the club managed to see off the interest in his signature, they are aware that he may be on his way out of the club this summer, but Bilyaletdinov has insisted that he will have to pull his socks up if he wants to secure a move.

“He has to prove his value and work like everyone else. I don’t mean that he doesn’t work, but we can see that he misses France,” he said.

“In January M’Vila behaved badly – one day he trained, one day he didn’t.

“Maybe his agents had promised him something. He thought he was already in Liverpool.

“I told him: ‘It is not your level. If you go, you will be on the bench’. He was very disappointed.

“Now I haven’t seen him for a while. I have been told he is in France to cure an injury. Even if he is back to full fitness, I don’t know where to play him.”
