QPR's pursuit of Yann M'Vila was boosted yesterday when west London neighbours Fulham cooled their interest in him.

Martin Jol launched a late attempt to hijack QPR's move for the Rennes and France midfielder, but the Dutchman has had second thoughts, says the Daily Mail.

Rs boss Harry Redknapp does not have a clear run at the player, though, because Everton are talking to Rennes about a loan deal for M'Vila.

Manager David Moyes is keen to sign M'Vila now with the guarantee of the transfer payment in the summer. Rennes want a total of £8.2million.
