Tannane: Les Verts a stepping stone

Oussama Tannane is not planning to stay with Saint-Etienne for much longer after admitting he wants to play for a "better club" in England or Spain.

The Morocco international only arrived in France six months ago when he joined Les Verts from Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo.

Tannane made a dream start to his career at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, scoring one and assisting another in a 4-1 win at Bordeaux – his first start after making his debut as a substitute against Paris Saint-Germain the week before.

But after finishing the campaign with two goals in 10 Ligue 1 appearances, the 22-year-old winger is looking to use the French club as a stepping stone to greater things and is keen to test himself in the Premier League or La Liga.

"I am someone who will give everything for his club. This year, I will stay at Saint-Etienne but it is true that I do not want to stay at the club for a long time," he told Voetbal International.

"I want a better club. I want to play football in a club of a great dimension. Saint-Etienne is a great club to improve yourself but I want to go to England or Spain. Maybe PSG, too."
