Hands off, say Hammers

West Ham United have refused Carlos Tevez permission to undertake a medical with Manchester United, according to reports.

The Hammers are understood to have rejected a plea from the current league Champions to give Tevez a medical examination tomorrow - despite him flying back to the UK late this afternoon in order to do so.

The two clubs met in London earlier today in order to thrash out a deal - but no agreement was reached.

Tevez - whose registration remains with West Ham United - has written to the Hammers asking them to allow him to leave. So far, that permission has been denied, leaving the 23-year-old striker in limbo.

And with the Hammers unlikely to play ball until the Reds make an acceptable bid for the player the saga is set to drag on throughout the summer - or at least until Manchester United decide to play ball.

Reds chief executive David Gill, speaking about the situation this morning, said:

"Effectively, we are trying to work with four parties - the player, West Ham, the company who own Carlos' economic rights and the Premier League - in order to sort it out.

"The process is ongoing. We still have to sort out the paperwork but we are confident that can be achieved in the course of the next week or so."

''This is a VERY tricky situation. WHU have to tread very carefully in this matter. One false step & they're in the sh*t! This whole matter is far from finished. As a WHU supporter I pray that we can follow the right path and extricate ourselves from the mess we are so very nearly in. If not, we may very well have points deducted - either for last season, or more likely, for this. One false step and we're finished!''
