Nice have insisted that key midfielder Florent Balmont will not be leaving the club this summer.
The powerful 26-year-old has been tentatively linked with a move to Paris Saint Germain, but Nice have no plans to part company with Balmont and say they are close to thrashing out a new deal.
"No one will leave this summer," Nice chairman Maurice Cohen told the club's website.
"Yesterday, we met with Florent Balmont and found an agreement with him.
"There will not be any bad surprises."
