QPR chairman dismisses link with Tevez swoop

Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes has played down reports of a swoop for want-away Manchester City star Carlos Tevez. Mega-rich Rangers are set to invest heavily in their playing squad during the January transfer window as they aim to avoid Premier League relegation.

Tevez played under new boss Mark Hughes at City, while the Argentine's advisor Kia Joorabchian is also Hughes's agent.

"You never know - but it's highly unlikely," Fernandes told 5 live.

"He's one of the most highly-paid players in the Premier League and I think his mind is to go to another country."
