St Etienne midfielder Blaise Matuidi is set to sign a new contract with the club.
The impressive Matuidi still has two years left on his current deal with Les Verts.
But they are now ready to reward him with an extension, keeping him at the club until 2013.
A host of teams, including Arsenal, are known to have been keeping tabs on the France Under-21 international's progress.
But the 22-year-old looks set to pledge his future to St Etienne by signing his extension in the coming days.
