West Ham can't chase Brown for compo cash

Any hope of West Ham chasing ex-chairman Terry Brown for financial help over their £30 million compo bill to Sheffield United is doomed to failure.

The Sun says banker Brown, who was in charge when Carlos Tevez signed in August 2006, walked away with £30m when he sold the club to Bjorgolfur Gudmundsson four months later.

But his settlement package with the new owners is watertight and the club will have to foot the bill for the mucky transfer overseen by Brown.
