PARIS, Jan 23 (Reuters) - France midfielder Yann Mvila has joined Russian side Rubin Kazan from Stade Rennes, the Ligue 1 club said on Wednesday.

"Stade Rennes, Rubin Kazan and Yann Mvila have found an agreement for the transfer of Yann Mvila," Rennes said on their website (www.staderennais.com).

"After passing his medical, Yann Mvila officially joins, on Wednesday evening, the Russian club."

Last November, Mvila was banned from all national teams until June 2014 after an unauthorised night out while on under-21 duty. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Alison Wildey)
