West Ham bringing to an end Tevez saga

West Ham are close to drawing a line under the costly Carlos Tevez affair with their final payment to Sheffield United to be made before the summer, it can be disclosed, reports Sporting Life.

The Hammers agreed an £18.1million compensation deal with now League One Sheffield United in 2009 over Tevez' role in keeping the London club in the Premier League in 2007 at the expense of the Blades.

Under the compensation deal, the payments were staggered until 2013 - the Blades' latest accounts confirm that, and the final £6million payment is due by July.

West Ham were fined £5million by a Premier League inquiry for breaching rules governing third-party ownership, but controversially no points were deducted and Tevez was permitted to play in the final three games of the season.
