Sam Allardyce believes there could be an 'outside chance' that West Ham United could persuade Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez to return to Upton Park.

Tevez is back in training with City after serving a two-week suspension following an alleged refusal to come on as a substitute against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.

Speaking in the immediate aftermath of last month's 2-0 defeat at the Allianz Arena, City boss Roberto Mancini suggested Tevez is finished at the club.

City have confirmed the Argentina international has a case to answer regarding alleged breaches of contract and Allardyce is awaiting the outcome of the investigation.

The West Ham boss would be keen to have Tevez at his disposal, but is unsure whether the former Manchester United man would be prepared to join the club on loan.

Blessing

When asked if there was a possibility of landing Tevez, Allardyce replied: "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 the co-chairman David Sullivan might want to pursue it. That would be with my blessing obviously.

"He 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 there was a possibility, then I think it is an outside chance.

"We will wait and see."

Tevez was a huge favourite during his one season at West Ham, scoring seven goals including the strike which kept them up at Manchester United on the final day of the campaign.

He was named the club's player of the year and the first time he returned to Upton Park as a United player, he saluted the crowd by crossing his arms in a 'Hammers' gesture.
