Carlos Tevez finally free to leave West Ham

 West Ham announced they have reached a settlement which would allow Carlos Tevez to leave the club.

Carlos Tevez finally free to leave West Ham On Friady West Ham announced that they have reached a £2 million settlement with representatives of Carlos Tevez, which would allow the Argentinean football player to leave the club. The agreement would finally allow Tevez to join Manchester United for the upcoming Premier League season.

 Although West Ham hold Carlos Tevez registration, his agent Kia Joorabchian claimed he owned economic rights in the player, and went as far as threatening to resolve this matter in High Court. This has now been avoided as both sides reached a beneficial settlement.

 A statement on the West Ham website reads:

 "The settlement ends the current litigation taking place between the respective parties and provides for a £2 million fee to be paid to West Ham United. The agreement confirms that West Ham United do have a valid player's contract with Carlos Tevez and hold the registration of the player. This will be released once the agreed fee has been paid to the club."

 And neither Tevez nor Manchester United are wasting time - the Argentinean footballer passed a medical earlier on Friday and is expected to sign the papers in the beginning of next week. Tevez will not join the Red Devils in time for the Community Shield on Sunday, but will begin training with the club over the weekend in preparation for the new season.

 The U.K. online betting website Bet365 (new window) offers odds on the Community Shield as follows: Chelsea 2.75 (7/4), Manchester United 2.62 (13/8) and 3.00 (2/1) for a draw.
