The verdict is - no verdict

Sheffield United have been informed that they may have to wait until the end of June before the result of their arbitration hearing will be known.

A glum looking Kevin McCabe - chairman of relegated Sheffield United - revealed that the three-man panel could take a further two weeks to reach a decision on the case, which concluded this afternoon after two days of evidence.

"Id like to thank the tribunal," he told reporters. "Its been a very complicated case and the panel are going away to review the evidence and submissions.

"We have been told to expect a decision by the end of the month, hopefully sooner.

"It would be inappropriate to comment further until a decision has been made."

McCabe later stormed off after being asked by one reporter about the transfer of Steve Kabba, which broke the very rule - rule U18 - that McCabe and his club are seeking to have the Hammers relegated for.

The Premier League are yet to speak on the matter.
