REVEALED: Ex-Man City ace Toure rejected Nice after Vieira call

Yaya Toure has rejected a move to Patrick Vieira's Nice.

The released Manchester City midfielder is set to join Olympiakos this week.

However he also had an offer from Nice, according to Senegalese media sources, where coach Vieira called Toure directly about a return to Ligue.

The former AS Monaco star had also been linked with Olympique Marseille, but declined both Vieira and OM.

Instead, Toure is set to move to Athens in an effort to extend his career.
