Damien Comolli has revealed St Etienne have held talks with a Premier League club over the future of Mouhamadou Dabo.
Dabo has just one year remaining on his current contract and reports have suggested he could be set for a transfer this summer.
It is alleged that Tottenham Hotspur are the side interested in Dabo, although the club have yet to comment on the rumour.
Former Spurs sporting director Comolli, who now holds the same role at St Etienne, is awaiting a formal approach regarding Dabo.
He told France Football: "We had a talk with a club from the Premier League.
"Now we are waiting for a written proposition."
