Sheffield United's players have confirmed they were never interested in sueing West Ham, and have said that no meeting over the matter ever took place.

United captain Chris Morgan has spoken out over the reports, which stated the Blades were looking for 'loss of earnings' compensation after being relegated by the Hammers.


“Where it's come from I've no idea," said Morgan. "There's been no meeting that I'm aware of that's taken place with any players this week.

"We've been thinking about the Watford game, not what's going on.

"We've always said as players we can't get involved in what goes on at that side, that's down to the chairman and chief executive and people like that.

"That's their job. We're employed by this football club to play football, not to set meetings up talking about money and things like that.

"I think if there is anything there the chairman will pull the players and say, 'Listen, this is what's happening', but no, as far as I'm aware there's been nothing.

"We've not even thought about it. It's something that has never cropped up. It's never been thrown about.

"On Tuesday morning when we got up for the Arsenal game it was on the breaking news that the club had won the arbitration and things like that.

"But we have nothing to do with that. We've never got involved in it. Obviously people ask us questions about it and we've got to try to answer as openly as we can. But we don't get involved in that."

You're REALLY starting to get on my nerves now, giraffe-boy.
