Seagulls seek Tevez clarification

Brighton have waded into the Carlos Tevez saga by writing to the Football Association to seek clarification over the West Ham striker´s eligibility to play in their FA Cup third-round clash back in January.

West Ham were fined £5.5million by the Premier League over irregularities surrounding the signings of Tevez and fellow Argentinian Javier Mascherano in August, but an arbitration panel will now be set up after complaints from relegated Sheffield United.

The row centres around the decision not to dock the Hammers points for signing third-party agreements in contravention of league rules. And now Coca-Cola League One side Brighton want to establish whether they have a case for compensation after Tevez played in West Ham´s 3-0 victory at Upton Park.
