Tevez affair should not affect West Ham spending

West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola says the club will not be affected by having to pay compensation to Sheffield United for the Carlos Tevez affair.

The Hammers are reported to have to pay United £25 million after they unfairly claimed the Argentine midfielder in the 2006/07 season when Sheffield were relegated.

"Once the matter is settled and we know what exactly is going to happen then we can look at the possibilities of what we can do in the future," he said in The Daily Mirror.

"It shouldn't affect our spending, so if we want to strengthen then we'll be able to do that."
