Saint-Etienne's new manager Ghislain Printant says the club don't need to sell William Saliba.
"The sale of Saliba is not an absolute necessity," Printant told reporters.
"There is no urgency [to do so]. He is courted by clubs.
"From a sporting point of view we want to keep him next season and that's his wish too. He still has room for development [here].
"We will see. Our goal is for him to be with us again this season."
