France midfielder Yann M'Vila confirmed on Friday that he intends to leave his current club Rennes this summer, amid speculation of an imminent switch to Arsenal.

"I am still under contract but I think I will leave," M'Vila said when asked at a press conference at France's pre-Euro 2012 training camp at Clairefontaine if he was certain to be moving on.

"Even with the European Championship coming up, I will be leaving. It is the right time to move on."

M'Vila, who could have a key role to play in the centre of France's midfield at the Euros, has been heavily linked with a transfer to the Emirates Stadium but he has yet to give a clear indication of exactly where his future lies after Euro 2012.

M'Vila, 21, was an ever-present in Ligue 1 for Rennes in the season just finished and has won 18 caps for Les Bleus.
