Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez is understood to have taken his appeal to the Premier League against the six-week fine imposed by the club for his ongoing absence

City fined Tevez after finding the Argentine guilty of gross misconduct on 22nd December.

Tevez subsequently appealed against the punishment but that was thrown out on 7th January after a hearing involving two City directors, Marty Edelman and Mohamed al-Mazrouei.

However, as with the disciplinary action brought against him after his non-appearance in Munich last September, Tevez had the option of taking the matter to the Premier League and it is thought he has done just that.

Watertight

Back in September, the 27-year-old succeeded in having a fine reduced from six weeks' wages to two, a saving of approximately £800,000.

In this instance, City feel their case is watertight given the punishment related to Tevez's presence in Argentina, where he has remained since 7th November.

With it appearing increasingly likely Tevez will still be a City player after the end of the January transfer window, his assimilation back into Roberto Mancini's squad does not look like being straightforward.

The Premier League will now be forced to schedule a hearing date, although it could be the end of next month before that takes place.
