Rennes midfielder Olivier Sorlin has had serious contact with St Etienne.
Rennes midfielder Olivier Sorlin had serious contact with St Etienne during January's transfer window.
The versatile 26-year-old stayed at Stade-de-la-route-de-Lorient, but could still be moving to the city where he was born when the window reopens in the summer.
"Indeed, I am in talks with the Rennes officials," said the attacking midfield man.
"They wish to prolong my contract.
"But it is true that I had contacts with St Etienne.
"As I will reach the end of my contract, I am listening to everyone.
"Being born in St Etienne, it is obvious I am not impervious to Les Verts' interest.
"I will make my decision in March.
"Honestly, I have not made my decision yet," he told But.
"Today, I am 26 years old and I told myself it is time to go back home.
"If I miss that opportunity, perhaps I could regret it.
"St Etienne is my club!"
