Rubin Kazan midfielder Yann M'Vila sparked a Liverpool transfer frenzy on Saturday after he was pictured in the away end at Goodison Park for the Merseyside derby, reports the Daily Mirror.

The 23-year-old France international was happy to pose for photographs with shocked Reds supporters, prompting a flurry of speculation on Twitter that he is set to join the club in January.

M'Vila has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, and has attracted interest from Arsenal and Tottenham prior to his £9.6million move to Russia in January.

However, the real reason behind M'Vila's appearance at Everton was to watch childhood friend Mamadou Sakho - whom he's played alongside in Les Bleus national youth teams - in action for Liverpool this weekend.

Unfortunately for M'Vila, the former Paris Saint-Germain star remained an unused substitute, as Brendan Rodgers's side went on to secure a 3-3 draw with the Toffees, courtesy of an 89th minute equaliser from Daniel Sturridge.

Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez had twice given Liverpool the lead, either side of Kevin Mirallas's well-taken goal, but the visitors fell behind after a brace from Romelu Lukaku looked like earning Roberto Martinez's men all three points.

Thankfully, substitute Sturridge came to the rescue, and ensured the Reds remained second in the Premier League table.

After the match, M'Vila confirmed that he was a guest of Sakho's posting on his official Facebook page: "Thank you to Mamadou Sakho for his invitation. I took great pleasure in coming to see the derby between Everton and Liverpool. A great football game!"
