Premier League & West Ham Statements Re: Carlos Tévez

The Premier League as well as West Ham United have issued statements on the Carlos Tévez transfer to Manchester United.

The Board of the Premier League confirms that the agreement reached is compliant with the rules of the Premiership and consistent with the undertakings given by West Ham United to the Premier League at various times since 27th April 2007. "This will lead to the cancellation of Tévez's registration, thereby releasing him to join anoter club in due course", the Premier League says on its website.

Today's Club statement of West Ham United says:
'West Ham United can confirm that a settlement has been reached today with the representatives of Carlos Tevez which will allow the player to leave the Club.
The settlement ends the current litigation taking place between the respective parties and provides for a £2million fee to be paid to West Ham United. The agreement confirms that West Ham United do have a valid player's contract with Carlos Tevez and hold the registration of the player. This will be released once the agreed fee has been paid to the Club.
The terms of the settlement are consistent with undertakings given by West Ham United to the Premier League and the rules of The Football Association.
Commenting on today's announcement, Eggert Magnusson, Chairman of West Ham United, said:
"I am obviously pleased that we have finally reached the end of this saga through agreement and common sense.
"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." '

Sheffield United made a statement as well, of course. It says that the club will study the deal closely before deciding upon its next course of action.

If there is anybody who still isn't fed up with the Carlos Tévez Saga, one can read "Q&A on Carlos Tevez deal" here, this story (BBC-website) or a "Carlos Tevez timeline" (Times Online).
Well, I haven't read them anymore.
