Nice have confirmed they have not received an approach for Patrick Vieira from Newcastle United.
The Frenchman is a leading candidate to replace Rafa Benitez.
He will leave St. James’ Park when his contract expires on June 30.
Vieira is being considered for the role, according to reports.
Sky Sports says Nice are yet to hear from the Magpies about a potential offer for their manager.
Steven Gerrard, Claudio Ranieri and Giovanni van Bronckhorst have all been linked with the Tyneside club.
