Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha could be set to make a return to France with OGC Nice after being released by Italian giants Lazio, talkSPORT reports.

The 34-year-old signed a short term deal with the Rome based club back in February but failed to find the net in six appearances during his spell in Serie A and he now looks set for a return home with Nice looking to offer him a deal to see out the rest of his career.

There had been some tentative interest from England, but reports suggest that only Nice have sought to offer him any kind of serious deal.

Saha began his career with Metz in 1997 and went on to have a long and successful career in England with Newcastle United, Fulham, Manchester United, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland before heading over to Italy earlier this year.

He enjoyed a good scoring record of 146 goals in 418 appearances during his time in England and came away with two league championships, a League Cup and a Champions League title during his time with Manchester United.

He was never quite able to make an impact on the international side, though, making just 20 appearances over eight years, scoring only four times.
