West Ham Consider An Appeal

West Ham United are refusing to comment on the result of the arbitration panel but seem to be considering appealing the guilty verdict.

"We need to digest the full findings of the arbitration panel and will consult our lawyers on the next steps we might take before making any further comment," a West Ham spokesman told the BBC.

Unfortunately for West Ham the FA released a statement this morning saying that

"There is no further right of appeal under FA rules."

According to the BBC however West Ham are still considering an appeal and could decide to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The FA panel are expected to begin deliberations next week about how much money the Championship club can expect to receive in compensation. Sheffield Utd are asking for £30 million.
