“There’s also interest from Manchester United, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City. Tiémoué’s priority is to stay at Monaco.

“Given that Tiémoué wasn’t a starter in the first two matches of pre-season, we wanted to know what the club’s plans for him were.

“[vice-President Vadim] Vasilyev said he was very happy with him, and that a departure was out of the question.

“He must come forward with the contract extension which he promised us at the time, because we can’t keep waiting.”
