The Premier League insist the Carlos Tevez case cannot be compared with other incidents when clubs have fielded ineligible players.

A six-page letter to all 20 club chairmen from league chief executive Richard Scudamore and chairman Sir Dave Richards says there is no issue over whether Tevez was eligible or not to play for West Ham and adds that there has been no precedent set that the club should have been docked points for having a third-party agreement.

The letter says: "Tevez has been properly registered to play for West Ham United since 31 August 2006. The Board, under our rules, is charged with the authority to determine this. He continues to be registered with West Ham United. This is a case without precedent and certainly cannot be compared with clubs who have played unregistered players or players ineligible through suspension."
