West Ham facing new Tevez compo claims

West Ham United could face another compo pay-out over the Carlos Tevez affair.

The London Evening Standard says West Ham still face potential claims of £4million from the Tevez affair despite having paid out £21m to Sheffield United.

Tevez helped West Ham avoid relegation in the 2006-07 season but it was later ruled that his signing broke rules on third-party ownership.

Although reaching an out-court-settlement with Sheffield United, who were relegated that term, the players want a total of £3.5m for loss of earnings.

Fulham are considering a claim of £500,000 for loss of merit money having finished two places below West Ham.
