Sheffield United plc chairman Kevin McCabe has claimed the club will turn to the European Commission to seek compensation if an independent arbitration panel rejects their bid to overturn their relegation from the Premier League.

The Blades are protesting at West Ham´s escape from a points deduction for fielding ineligible duo Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano, and McCabe told BBC Radio Five Live: "We´ll go to the European Commission for them to opine.

"We believe we have maybe got a human rights issue because of the loss of jobs that has been established if we are relegated, the salaries that are reduced because of going from the Premiership to the Championship and those sort of issues."
