West Ham manager Sam Allardyce hasn’t given up hope of bringing Carlos Tevez back to Upton Park.
Tevez returned to training at Manchester City on Thursday following his suspension for apparently refusing to go on as a substitute against Bayern Munich a fortnight ago however the future of the striker remains uncertain, with a January departure looking very likely.
West Ham have already had an initial enquiry about a possible loan move knocked back however Allardyce has continued to monitor the situation and has not given up hope of Tevez returning to the club he originally joined in 2006.
Speaking at today’s pre match conference, Allardyce took time out from talking about the clash with Blackpool to discuss the possibility of signing Tevez saying “The answer is I don’t know.
“I suppose the situation, from my point of view, is just if and when the decision is finally made regarding what’s happening with Carlos at Manchester City, then perhaps my co-chairman David Sullivan might want to pursue it.
“That would be with my blessing, obviously. [Sullivan] was the man who talked about it with me first and if we could get him back here, based on what he did here last time and if he did love the club as much as he did, and if it was a possibility, then I think it’s an outside chance.
“We’ll wait and see.”
Tevez remains a huge favourite at Upton Park after scoring the goal which kept them up on the final day of the campaign.
