Move youtube channel to different Google+ page

I have a youtube channel that's attached to my personal Google+ account, but I want to instead attach it to my business Google+ account that's associated with a separate Google account. I'm a manager on both accounts, but when I go to youtube to make the switch, it says ''no other profiles or pages available to move the channel to'. Any thoughts? Thanks, Phil

Have you tried transferring Ownership of the channel to the new account? - https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/4627568?hl=en

In order to move the the channel to the other page, but the channel and Google+ page must have the same owner email address. If you are only a manager the owner email will have to do it.

Thanks you two, in the end I couldn't transfer the youtube account to the owner of the google+ account, but I could transfer the ownership of the google+ account to the owner of the youtube account, like this:

1. Log in to Google My Business and choose the page you’d like to manage.
2. Choose My Business > Settings from the left-hand navigation ribbon.
3. Click the Managers tab in top navigation menu. If the person you want to transfer to isn't already a manager, make them one now and wait 24 hours after they accept to go to the next step. If they're already a manager, go to the next step now.
4. Click the dropdown arrow on the card of the person and select 'Transfer ownership to person'.
5. The transfer of ownership happens immediately. You'll automatically become a manager of the Google+ page. Now the person should be able to move the youtube channel to that page and then delete the old Google+ page.
