Hammers' appeal to CAS doomed to failure

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) have revealed they are highly unlikely to entertain an appeal from West Ham United over compensation due to Sheffield United over the Carlos Tevez affair.

The Hammers have been ordered to pay the Blades an unconfirmed sum, which is believed could be in the region of £30million, after a hearing by an independent panel.

But the CAS have insisted they cannot hear the case without the agreement of the Championship club, which seems highly improbable. And as League rules state that no club can take further action in relation to an indepenent ruling, something else the CAS will not break, this avenue appears to be closed.

Matthieu Reeb, the Secretary General of the CAS, told BBC Sport: "As things stand, CAS would not be able to hear this case.

"We would need agreement from Sheffield United and for Football Association rules to allow an appeal to CAS."

West Ham must now consider if they wish to take further legal action before paying the huge compensation sum to the Bramall Lane club.
