Metz captain Gregory Proment is set to stay with the Championnat club.
Proment has been a target of several English clubs over the past few years and it appeared he would leave this summer with his current deal set to expire.
However, the Grenats captain is set to stay loyal to the Metz cause - even if they are relegated from Ligue 1.
"I have not closed the door to a possible prolongation," confirmed Proment.
"I don't forget everything I owe as sportsman and man to FC Metz and chairman Carlo Molinari.
"I know some clubs are following my performances, but there are so many things at Metz.
"I know I am important in people's eyes. It is not a lack of ambition, but I am fine here."
