The dispute over the future of Carlos Tevez may be decided out-of-court in the next couple of days, BBC Sport understands.

The player's representative Kia Joorabchian issued a writ to West Ham in an attempt to secure his proposed £30m move to Manchester United.

But with no date set for a high court hearing it is thought that both parties could come to an agreement.

Joorabchian's companies claim they own the economic rights to the 23-year-old.

BBC Sport's football reporter Nigel Adderley said: "The difference in the amount of compensation each side believes would be fair could still leave Tevez in limbo at the start of the season.
