Shamed Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez favours a move to another Premier League club, the Daily Mirror report today.

Manchester City's Carlos Tevez - 0

Tevez's agent Kia Joorabchian has laid the foundations for a move elsewhere in England, saying the 27-year-old is now content living away from his native Argentina.

“His family are now living in England, so he’s quite happy and settled,” said Joorabchian.

“He had some problems about being away from them before, but they are with him now and everything is fine. He’d be happy to move to another Premier League club.”

The news will come as something of a surprise to City fans, having heard Tevez insist all summer that not being settled in England was behind his desire to leave the club.

The Daily Star reports that Rio Ferdinand's exit from Manchester United has become inevitable.

The 32-year-old, the paper claim, was Sir Alex Ferguson's scapegoat for the derby defeat to Manchester City, and the upshot will be that he could find himself out of Old Trafford as early as January.

Fergie is keeping an eye on Borussia Dortmund's Neven Subotic as a possible replacement and Ferdinand himself may find that Harry Redknapp would be interested in bringing him to Tottenham should the defender become available.

In transfer tittle-tattle the Mirror report that Andre Villas-Boas has his eye on Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Goetze, who is making waves for club and country.

The same paper also links out-of-favour Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh with a return to his previous club Bordeaux.

The Sun, meanwhile, hints that ex-glamour model Sybil Danning could be in line to become owner of Sheffield Wednesday.

Her and husband Horst Lasse have rescued a German ice hockey club and are quoted as being interested in purchasing an English team.

Good news for Roberto Martinez: Wigan are bottom of the table but chairman Dave Whelan is reported in the Daily Mail saying that he will 'never' fire his manager.

And Steve Kean is equally safe in the Blackburn job, the Mirror suggest - because he's about to buy a house in the area.

Abroad, concerns grow for Antonio Cassano, laid low by a mystery illness that required hospitalisation, with the Daily Telegraph reporting rumours that the AC Milan and Italy striker could have had a stroke.

And in Scotland the Daily Record carry an exclusive that Rangers striker Steven Naismith is set to miss the season after suffering cruciate ligament damage in the weekend's SPL clash at Aberdeen.
