New Nice coach Vieira upset Newcastle, Spurs target Plea gone AWOL

New Nice coach Patrick Vieira is frustrated with the absence of Alassane Plea.

The striker has been linked with Tottenham, West Ham and Newcastle United - and has missed the start of preseason training.

Vieira said, “We were expecting him [Plea] today but he wasn't here and it wasn't foreseen.

"My wish is to keep the players who want to be part of the project."

Newcastle are believed to have had a bid rejected for Plea in the last 24 hours.
