Carlose Tevez has reportedly rejected a move from West Ham to Inter Milan after the Italian giants set a deadline for Tevez to make a decision over his future.
The Argentine striker looks likely to leave Upton Park this season in search of a bigger club.
He had previously expressed his interest in playing for the Italian champions, but it would seem the pressure they applied on him has forced a change of heart.
A Kia Joorabchian statement said: "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.
"...We are still talking and hope to come to some arrangement."
The odd looking striker has also expressed an interest in playing for The Arsenal. As reported on vital Arsenal. CLICK HERE TO READ THE STORY
So, what now for Carlos? Well Real Madrid are known to be interested in him, but it would seem that he now wants to stay in English football.
Arsenal, United and Liverpool are all known to be after a new striker, could he join one of those clubs?
Well United are not likely to have the funds required after splashing £50Million on 3 players already this summer, so I don't think they will be in for him.
Liverpool is a definite option. They are without a half-decent striker in their ranks and the prospect of linking up with friend and former team mate Javier Mascherano could prove tempting for him.
The Arsenal will (we hope) be looking for a top class striker to replace Henry. The style of football played at Arsenal would suit Tevez and he has already expressed an interest in coming. Arsenal have the money for him, it's a case of whether Wenger will be prepared to part with a vast sum to land the talented striker.
Or of course there is a slim chance that he will remain at West Ham. It would be a massive boost for the Hammers, but it does seem unlikely.
While he had a torrid start to life in England, Tevez began to settle towards the end of last season, grabbing 7 goals in his last 10 games to save West Ham from certain relegation.
