The Premier League have confirmed they will deal with Carlos Tevez's appeal against a six-week fine imposed by Manchester City "at the earliest available opportunity".
Tevez's advisors lodged an appeal against the gross-misconduct fine of approximately £1.2million with the Premier League on Monday night.
"The Premier League received correspondence from Carlos Tevez last night giving notice of Mr Tevez's intention to appeal against a disciplinary sanction imposed on him by his club, Manchester City," the Premier League confirmed. "Premier League rules allow for players to appeal disciplinary decisions under Section K and the Premier League Board will consider this request at the earliest available opportunity."
