FIFA are to investigate whether there was anything wrong in the decision not to dock West Ham points over the Carlos Tevez affair.

The game´s world governing body will demand the Premier League hand over all the files related to the rule breaches over the signing of Tevez and Javier Mascherano.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter said the game´s governing body would look into the case as a matter of urgency - whether or not they are invited to do so, telling a media briefing in Zurich: "We will look at this - and not only if we are asked, we will do it anyway. We will ask for the file once it has been decided how and why the decision was made. If we feel something was wrong in this decision then we have to open our file."
