Quotes of the week
West Ham United have confirmed that they have agreed a deal for Carlos Tevez to leave the club.
The Hammers have revealed that they will receive £2million compensation for the Argentine - who is now free to join Manchester United.
The announcement brings to an end weeks of negotiations and speculation about Tevez's future and also sees the threat of High Court action ended.
"I am obviously pleased that we have finally reached the end of this saga through agreement and common sense," said Hammers chairman Eggert Magnusson.
"All parties involved can now move on and truly focus on the new season.
"I wish Carlos Tevez well for the next stage of his playing career. He is a fine player and I am sure he will be successful wherever he plays football.
"Personally, I am looking forward to the next stage of our development as a club and for what I hope will be a very exciting new season in the Premier League."
United are now expected to tie up Tevez on an initial two-year loan deal from MSI, for which they will pay around £10million.
"Carlos is looking forward to being a Manchester United player and his ambition is close to being achieved," said his representative.
"We would like to thank Manchester United for all their patience and support
The Premier League has confirmed they are satisfied West Ham acted accordingly when they terminated the third-part deals with Kia Joorabchian in April.
"The Premier League can confirm that its board has received and considered a proposal for the settlement of the dispute between Carlos Tevez
and West Ham United," read a statement.
"The decision of the board, having received leading counsel's opinion, is that
the agreement reached is compliant with the rules of the Premier League and
consistent with the undertakings given by West Ham United to the Premier League board at various times since 27th April 2007.
"This will lead to the cancellation of Tevez's registration, thereby releasing
him to join another club in due course."

it was an obvious scam from the start.
why would MSI agree to tear up their contract in April and let him 'sign' for West Ham?
surely Sheffield Utd should have a justified case against the Premier League. Should sue them for £30/40 million

the article seems like bull. they never actually say why its held up, they just say it hasn't been rubber stamped yet, everyone knew that already. must not have been much news for sky sports to write about....
The whole thing stinks and Sheffield Utd have every right to be p!ssed off about the whole episode.
They got relegated because the Premier League upheld West Hams claim that they held the players registration. Then a couple of months later West Ham then "sell" a £30m rated player for £2m while the original company that claimed to own him gets £10m for a 2 year loan with a £25m fee to follow if Man Utd decide to sign him after that!!
Rotten to the core.

We'll see how Tevez plays now he's no longer playing for a move to a big club.
