After selling Giuseppe Rossi to Villarreal, Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is confident of welcoming Carlos Tevez to Old Trafford.

"I am not worried because I am confident the player will eventually arrive," he said.

"But it has been dragging on and it has become a bit frustrating.

"At the moment it is going to the High Court. I am sure we will get a final decision on the matter there. But if something happens before that, it is something we would welcome.

"I just want the matter settled, the sooner the better as far as everyone is concerned.

"I am sure even West Ham think that way. They have their own plans and they have done a lot of buying and selling, so they will want some kind of conclusion in terms of how their team is shaping up."
