In the Papers

The Sunday Mirror claim Terence Brown has yet to receive the full amount from the Eggert Magnusson takeover of West Ham. The new owners intend now to withhold £5.5 million to cover the Premier League imposed fine.

The Mirror also speculate that the FA may now be forced to take action against West Ham for Tevez' appearances in the FA Cup. They wonder if West Ham will be thrown out of next year's FA Cup.

The News of the World claim that West Ham avoided a points deduction because of Eggert Magnusson. Magnusson pleaded guilty to a breach of rules but made it clear he would fight any points deduction in the courts. Faced with having the uncertainty of who would eventually be relegated from the Premiership dragging on for months the League had little option but to decide against a points deduction.

The People claim that the £5.5 million fine will be deducted from Alan Curbishley's £12 million transfer kitty.

The Star claim West Ham are interested in David James' nephew Preston Edwards,, currently keeping for Millwall reserves.
