Tameze was the subject of offers from Watford and Cardiff City.
He recalled to Nice-Matin: “I did not expect that. It surprised me that it happened so early. It’s nice to know that you are being followed but I wanted to make a full season with Nice.
“I was not sure I could find such a good agreement with a coach elsewhere.
“It was very interesting (smiles). We did not really go into the details but it was a very big offer. It made me think.”
