The French media is reporting that Tottenham Hotspur have made a formal bid of €15m for Rennes central midfielder Yann M'Vila. Rennes want a fee closer to €20m but their less-than-golden financial situation means that Tottenham's offer could be enough to seal the deal.

M'Vila, 22, was part of the France squad that failed to spark at Euro 2012.
