The former Huddersfield Town hit-man has notched two goals in two games - against Middlesbrough and Newcastle - but his manager is keen to keep the youngster's feet firmly on the ground.
"We have certainly been livelier up front since the arrival of Jonathan who has grabbed the headlines," declared Souness.
"It has been a great start for Jonathan but that is all it is."
The Scot is no stranger to problems with his frontmen having had run-ins with both Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole in recent times.
However, the former Liverpool supremo is confident that he will suffer no such difficulties with 20-year-old Stead.
"It is my job to keep young players focused although he is a solid boy and I don't anticipate any problems of that kind."
