West Ham to Sue FA
ESPN are reporting that West Ham are about to serve the FA with a writ for compensation for the injury suffered by Dean Ashton whilst training for England.
The FA claim that Ashton went on to play 40 times for West Ham after his injury and therefore feel happy that they can dodge their moral duty. ESPN say the writ will be for £10.5 million. That is £8 million for insurance costs and £2.5 million for the pay-out that the club paid Ashton when he was forced to quit in December 2009.
