Manchester City have turned down an offer from West Ham to bring back Carlos Tevez to Upton Park on loan.
The Championship side made the offer with Tevez’s future at City shrouded in doubt following his sensational bust-up with Roberto Mancini during the midweek defeat to Bayern Munich.
The former Manchester United striker has been suspended by City for two weeks after allegedly refusing to come on as a substitute against Bayern in the Champions League.
In his post game interview Mancini claimed Tevez was ‘finished’ at City although the player himself has denied that he had snubbed the instruction from Mancini to leave his place on the bench.
Tevez has openly sought a move from Manchester in recent months and a number of clubs have been linked with a move for Tevez in the wake of the latest incident
However despite players being able to move from Premier League to Championship clubs outside of the transfer window Tevez, who is a hero at Upton Park following his role in their 2006/2007 survival campaign, looks set to stay on the City sidelines until January at least.
