Lens teenager Serge Aurier looks set to stay in France, snubbing a possible move to England.
Sunderland are reported to have joined the face to sign the highly-rated full-back with Blackburn and Manchester City already believed to be keen on the 18-year-old.
However, Aurier now admits that he is more likely to remain in France.
"To be honest I want to play in this country [France] for the next two years," Aurier said.
"I want to have more experience before leaving for a foreign country.
"Some people think that way for me, whilst others want me to go to a top league to progress.
"But the final decision is mine, I want to improve here - I want to play in Ligue 1 and progress, the priority for me is not moving abroad."
