The highly-rated 18-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, has committed himself to the Ligue 1 outfit until 2017.

Chelsea are also reported to hold an interest in the talented teenager, who is already being talked about as a future leader of the France national side.

Zouma is flattered by the high praise and mounting interest, but is aware of the need to keep working on his game.

For that reason, the teenage centre-half has opted to remain with a side prepared to offer him regular football and one at which he feels comfortable and able to produce his best.

In a statement released through St Etienne, Zouma said: "This extension is a great vote of confidence in me from the club.

"St Etienne means a lot to me because it is where I was developed.

"This is a new step in my career. I still need to learn. I will also gain experience and I know that will help me to grow."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
