Kia: Tevez can stay with West Ham

Joorabchian told PA Sport: “There have been no talks of any kind at all because Carlos and I agreed we would wait until the final game of the season was over so he could concentrate fully on getting West Ham out of trouble.

“So reports saying Carlos is leaving West Ham because he stopped taking English lessons are just not true.

“Carlos stopped having lessons because he is returning soon to Argentina and does not know where he will be playing next season.

“He could be at West Ham but he doesn’t know yet because we have done nothing about his future.

“We will talk to West Ham and any other interested parties.

“Carlos loves playing for West Ham and has a great relationship with the supporters.

“He would like to stay if all parties can agree a deal between them.”
