Carlos Tevez has appealed to the Premier League against the six-week fine imposed by Manchester City for his ongoing absence.

City imposed the fine after finding Tevez guilty of gross misconduct on December 22. Tevez subsequently appealed against the punishment but that was thrown on January 7 after a hearing involving two City directors, Marty Edelman and Mohamed al-Mazrouei.

However, as with the disciplinary action brought against him after his non-appearance in Munich last September, Tevez had the option of taking the matter to the Premier League and Press Association Sport understands he has done just that.
