Sheffield Utd players plan West Ham legal action

Sheffield United players are weighing up legal action against West Ham.

The Daily Mail says at least ten of the players who were relegated with Sheffield United have taken the first step in launching their own multi-million pound legal action against West Ham.

Their Bramall Lane employers are already demanding more than £30million after an independent Football Association tribunal concluded that they should be compensated by West Ham in the wake of the Carlos Tevez scandal.

But now the players who have suffered financially as a result of United's relegation to the Championship in May 2007 have opened discussions with a leading UK sports lawyer in a bid to make their own claim for compensation.
