Carlos Tevez's request for a transfer away from Eastlands has been dismissed by Manchester City.

The 26-year-old Argentinean striker, who is also the captain at Eastlands, is believed to be missing his homeland and wants to leave the club who are currently joint top of the Premier League.

Tevez appeared to have a spat with manager Roberto Mancini after the player's last outing for the Blues against Bolton and the two are believed to have had fall outs in the past.

However, there is confusion surrounding Tevez's position as a club statement has shown that the former Manchester United striker's representatives actually wanted to extend his deal at City.

It read:"The club remains disappointed by this situation and particularly with the actions of Carlos' representative.

"The written transfer request is in stark contrast to Carlos' stated position in both public and club contexts. Significantly, over recent months, the club has also received numerous requests from Carlos' representative to renegotiate and improve his playing contract as well as more recently a request to extend that contract by another year."

Tevez could leave the club in the upcoming transfer window in January if his issues with the club cannot be resolved.
