SHEFFIELD United today lost their legal challenge against the Premier League after an arbitration panel dismissed their claim over the Carlos Tevez affair.

The Yorkshire club had wanted the panel to order a new disciplinary commission deal with West Ham but had their claim dismissed today.

The Blades also lost another claim - made jointly with Fulham - that the Premier League should have forced West Ham to de-register Tevez.

Sheffield's failure effectively ends their battle to avoid relegation to the Coca-Cola Championship.
