Chief executive Richard Scudamore has confirmed the Premier League will abide by any ruling FIFA make should football´s world governing body step in to rule on the Carlos Tevez affair.

FIFA are still considering their response following a high-level meeting of officials from the Premier League, FA, West Ham and Manchester United on Monday, but it appears increasingly likely they will make the final decision on the status of Tevez´s relationship with West Ham.

"A third party, quite frankly, as far removed from this as possible needs to sort it out," Scudamore told PA Sport. "That is why it is better for FIFA to determine it. Hopefully, they can adjudicate and they can do it quickly."
