Scott Parker is confident West Ham won't be thrown out of the Premiership.

This despite today's arbitration tribunal which meets to discuss relegated Sheffield United's challenge against the Hammers over the illegal registration of Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano.

If United are successful in their campaign, West Ham could drop down to the Championship in their place, but Parker has no fears.

The England midfielder said: "No, that didn't worry me at all."

And he confirmed he had nothing in his five-year contract regarding that situation, saying: "No, nothing whatsoever."
