With Paris Saint Germain having pulled out of the race to sign the French international, Marseille remain favourites to land the young midfielder, although their offer falls short of Sochaux's valuation.
Plessis confirmed though he is to meet the 22-year-old soon to propose to him a contract extension to keep him at Stade Bonal and fend off rivals for his services.
"I will propose to him a contract prolongation for two years with a clause to leave at the end of each year," confirmed the supremo.
"I believe it is a very honest proposition. About Marseille, I haven't heard any more news for about a week.
"For the moment, we will act exactly like if Benoit will remain with us."
