MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City announced on Monday that captain Carlos Tevez has formally withdrawn his request to leave the club.

The Argentina international handed in a transfer request on December 11, saying that his relationship with "certain executives and individuals at the club" had broken down.

However, the club released a statement on its official website on Monday that read: "Manchester City can confirm to its fans that 'clear the air' talks have been held with Carlos Tevez.

"During the meeting Carlos expressed his absolute commitment to the club and formally withdrew his transfer request.

"Carlos' contract remains unchanged and both Carlos and the football club are keen to focus on the opportunities that lie ahead."

Tevez has scored 10 goals in 15 games for City this season, with the club entering Monday's game against Everton just two points back of leaders Manchester United.
