Saint-Etienne defender Kurt Zouma has admitted he has been flattered by the speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
The highly-rated defender, who is just 18, has been earning admirers for his performances in Ligue 1 and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to be keeping an eye on the youngster.
Zouma believes he still has plenty to learn in the game but admits he has been pleased by the link to Old Trafford.
He told Le10's magazine: "It's been fun. It is true that it is flattering. I'm glad I know I'm watched but for now I mainly want to find my place after my injury of several weeks. I think I still have things to learn here. I still have to gain experience."
