Stead was one of the finds of last season, as he took to The Premiership like a duck to water following his move from Huddersfield.
Souness feels Stead could become a target for the big guns if he continues to progress at his current rate, but such a scenario does not seem to faze the fiery Scot.
The Ewood Park chief, who paid £750,000 for Stead, said: "If Jon becomes a proper player and a big club comes along in four years' time, when he has got a year left on his contract, we will not be able to hold onto him.
"But if he continues to improve and scores 20 goals a season, we will still have won the lottery."
