Tevez turns down Inter

West Ham United striker Carlos Tevez appears to be leaning towards staying in the Premier League after declining to meet Internazionale's deadline.

Tevez is weighing up his club future and has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Inter and Real Madrid.

Inter had expressed an interest in signing the Argentine, but president Massimo Moratti revealed earlier on Thursday that Tevez was 'no longer an objective'.

According to the forward's representative Kia Joorabchian, Inter had set a deadline for the player to make a decision on a move to the Serie A champions.

Joorabchian admits Tevez was not willing to meet that demand, particularly as he seems keen to stay in English football.

"Inter put a deadline on the decision and Carlos' heart is really in the Premier League, so he was not prepared to meet that cut-off point," said Joorabchian in a statement.

Tevez, who has yet to rule out staying at West Ham next season, is currently in Venezuela on Copa America duty with the Argentine national team.

Joorabchian also dismissed suggestions that Tevez has been offered a £100,000-a-week contract to stay at Upton Park.

He added: "He has not been offered that sum of money to stay, but it is true we are still talking and hope to come to some arrangement."

Ya know, if you just took a second to look first, you'd see this story has already been posted (and commented upon) in another thread .

I wouldn't pay too much attention to anything said by Kia Joorabchian. He's the same shady agent behind the transfer dealings that have caused West Ham so much trouble, as well as the mysterious Corinthians signings. More likely, after Inter had renounced interest in Tevez earlier that day (as great a player as he is, there is simply no room for him), Joorabchian was just trying to help his client save face by concocting some story about a deadline.

yep, for Tevez himself West Ham could still be a reasonable option - he'll have enough playing time, sufficient level of pressure to perform and number of games played. This is ideal for his development, so one or two seasons in West Ham are actually quite good for him football wise, money wise probably not.

Manchester United have sensationally agreed a £20 million deal for West Ham United striker Carlos Tevez overnight.

that's what is writing. So good choice for Tevez. Price is amazingly high, but I think it will pay off, just like Ronaldo's transfer paid off to MU
