FIFA have confimed that a decision over Carlos Tevez's future will not be made today.
Eggert Magnusson confirmed that a ruling had been delayed when asked about the possibility of Tevez remaining at West Ham United next season in today's press conference at the Boleyn ground.
"I've heard nothing but the FA and the Premier League have met today at FIFA headquarters," he said.
"I think FIFA have to decide if they have jurisdiction over the matter - and I hope so because everybody concerned wants it to go that way.
And when pressed as to whether a decision would be reached by the start of the new season, which kicks off on August 11th, he added:
"The sooner the better for everybody involved."
