Vieira hints at return to England

06 January 2010 11:07
Patrick Vieira has dropped a strong hint that he is set to join Manchester City in the current transfer window. The 33-year-old Internazionale midfielder has been strongly linked with a return to the Premier League with the Eastlands club. The former Arsenal skipper is on the periphery of the first team at Inter and is expected to join City in a bid to keep his dream of representing France at the World Cup alive. Reports in Italy claim he will head to England to discuss terms with City following Inter's Serie A trip to Chievo on Wednesday evening. And now Vieira, who played under new City boss Roberto Mancini at Inter, has suggested that a return to the Premier League is on the cards. "Nothing has been signed so far, but it is going well," Vieira told L'Equipe.
