PL hearing delayed


Filed: Thursday, 26th April 2007
By: Matthew O'Greel


The Premier League hearing regarding charges relating to the signings of Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano has been adjourned until tomorrow.

Chairman Eggert Magnusson and club representatives attended the hearing in London this morning only to be advised around lunchtime that it was being delayed by some 24 hours.

With proceedings still expected to be concluded on Friday, West Ham are hoping that any guilty verdict will result in a fine only.

The Premier League's charge read:

"It is the board's complaint that there were agreements in relation to both these transfers that enabled third parties to acquire the ability materially to influence the club's policies and/or the performance of its teams.

"Furthermore at the time of the transfer agreements for both Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano, and until 24 January 2007, West Ham failed to disclose the third-party agreements to the Premier League and/or deliberately withheld these agreements from the Premier League."

Should United have a fine imposed it is thought likely that Eggert Magnusson will seek to recoup the outlay from former Chairman Terry Brown, who was in charge of the club at the time of the transfers.
