Rennes have reiterated that they do not want to sell Everton target Stephane M'Bia.
The Cameroon international has been high on David Moyes's wanted list all summer and The Toffees have made contact with Rennes.
The Ligue 1 outfit have always stated that the 22-year-old is not for sale and they are standing by that.
"Our position has not changed," said Rennes general manager Pierre Dreossi.
"We remain determined to retain Stephane M'Bia and I repeat this decision is firm and final."
With M'Bia now appearing to be out of reach and Tiago also rejecting a move to Goodison Park, Moyes could turn his attention to Lorik Cana of Marseille - who has also been strongly linked with a move to Everton.
