Former Crystal Palace boss, Patrick Vieira, has turned down three Premier League job offers since being sacked.
Top French newspaper L’Equipe reports that the likes of Leeds United and Leicester City were among the teams that approached Vieira.
Both teams have since hired Sam Allardyce and Dean Smith, respectively.
Nottingham Forest also wanted to appoint the Frenchman as a replacement for Steve Cooper before the club decided to stick with their man, who penned a new deal.
Vieira will instead set his sights on a Premier League return this summer.
