The Premier League have told Sheffield United their share in the top flight will be taken from them next week if the club fail to relinquish it voluntarily.

Relegated United are refusing to relinquish their Premiership share as the Carlos Tevez saga rumbles on. However, Premier League officials have said if the Blades maintain their stance their share will be taken from them.

"If Sheffield United do not return the share, Premier League rules mean it will be unilaterally transferred to a promoted club and this will happen at our AGM this coming Thursday," a Premier League spokesman said.
