CAS Turn Down West Ham Case
The Court of Arbitration for Sport has announced that it can not hear West Ham's appeal against the FA tribunal findings.
CAS secretary general Matthieu Reeb has said that the court could not hear a case if it is referred to by just one party. It is unlikely that Sheffield United will agree to the case going to CAS - so it seems that the only recourse West Ham would have is going to the law courts. Such a move is not allowed by FIFA and could see English Premier League teams being thrown out of European competition.
