QPR boss Harry Redknapp says Yann M'Vila gaffed joining Rubin Kazan.
Redknapp spoke with M'Vila before the former Rennes midfielder committed to the Russian club.
"It was money in the end, that was the key," said Redknapp. "I think this would have been the best move for him - to come and play in the Premier League. He was up for coming here and it looked like we had him, but they (Rubin Kazan) came in late and blew us out of the water with the money they offered him."
