Manchester City have announced that Carlos Tevez has withdrawn his transfer request after he held "clear-the-air" talks with the Premier League club.

The Argentine had handed in a formal transfer request on December 11, which City rejected.

Now the club have revealed Tevez has expressed his "absolute commitment" and will be staying at Eastlands.

A statement on the club's website said: "Carlos' contract remains unchanged and both Carlos and the football club are keen to focus on the opportunities that lie ahead."

Manager Roberto Mancini added: "Carlos is a world-class player whose contribution since he joined the club has been invaluable.

"I am pleased that we are now able to focus on pure football matters and to be able to look forward to Carlos continuing to play a significant role in the club's progress."

After City had turned down Tevez's request, they also criticised the "actions of Carlos' representative (Kia Joorabchian)."

In response, the player released a statement saying his request had not been a knee-jerk reaction to any one particular event but rather he had wanted to leave in the summer.
