Carlos Tevez accepts he has no major role in the plans of Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini.

The Daily Mail says Tevez, 29, would consider staying in the North West, but realises he may not feature heavily in new manager Pellegrini's plans.

Tevez's contract runs out next summer and the 2012 Premier League champions could be willing to part company with the former West Ham and Manchester United hitman, in the knowledge that he could walk away for nothing next summer.
