Arsenal great Patrick Vieira is in contact with Bournemouth.

The Mirror says Vieira who is alongside old Manchester United foe Roy Keane in the ITV studio during the European Championships was interviewed by the Cherries in February after Jason Tindall was sacked.

But in the end the south coast club appointed former Middlesbrough manager Jonathan Woodgate who was handed a short term contract which runs out at the end of this month.

A failure to win promotion back to the Premier League through the play-offs has dented Woodgate's chances of seeing his stay at The Vitality Stadium extended.

That has led to talks with a number of managerial candidates including Vieira whose last job was with French side Nice.
