AC Milan are in no hurry to complete the signing of Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez.

City are reluctant to let Tevez go on loan, but Milan's vice-president Adriano Galliani is still hoping a deal can go ahead, especially as his side are without the services of the unwell Antonio Cassano.

"Tevez is our first choice," he told "We know we have the player's agreement, but we hope he will not agree with other clubs. There is a deadline of 18:59 on January 31 to complete his transfer. Everyone knows what Milan's position is and he will arrive only due to (Antonio) Cassano's problem."
