Fulham are taking legal action against Premier League chairman Sir Dave Richards.
The Premier League have carried out their own internal investigation into Fulham's amazing allegations and are satisfied Richards has done nothing wrong.
But Fulham are so incensed at missing out on Crouch they have started legal proceedings.
A source confirmed: "Fulham believed Crouch was theirs. They were staggered when he joined Spurs for £2m less than they offered."
