Case closed

The arbitration panel examining the decision to fine West Ham United for breaching Premier League rules have upheld the original verdict.

The news - which was announced just after 2.30pm this afternoon - ends any hope Sheffield United had of retaining a place in the Premier League at the expense of West Ham United.

Eggert Magnusson - speaking on behalf of United via whufc.com - said:

"We are happy that this matter is finally closed and all parties can now move on. The arbitration panel's decision is very clear and reflects what we have believed all along.

"West Ham United have been preparing for next season in the Premier League since the final whistle at Old Trafford in May and we will continue to do so."
