Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew feels Carlos Tevez's situation at Manchester City can be rescued.

Pardew feels it is not beyond the realms of possibility that a solution could be found.

He said: "You never know in football. There have been massive conflicts in the past and then suddenly, it is ironed out.

"Who would have thought Harry Redknapp would have gone from Southampton as manager back to Portsmouth or, for that matter, that Alex McLeish would go from Birmingham to Aston Villa as manager?

"Sometimes it can be overcome by a performance on the pitch. Tevez could still be forgiven, even now."
