Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has held showdown talks with Wigan chairman Dave Whelan after the sportswear supremo called on him to resign over the Carlos Tevez affair.

Scudamore phoned Whelan on Thursday in response to an email from the Wigan chairman saying he and Premier League chairman Sir Dave Richards should consider resigning "over a dereliction of duty".

A Premier League spokesman said: "The Premier League board and Mr Whelan have spoken and both parties have agreed to continue their discussions in a manner more appropriate to League business."
