SHEFFIELD UNITED captain Chris Morgan has denied that the club's players are set to launch individual compensation claims against West Ham over the Carlos Tevez affair.

An independent tribunal last week ruled in favour of the Blades in the long-running legal battle over Tevez, who was instrumental in keeping West Ham in the Premier League two seasons ago.

The Hammers are attempting to overturn the verdict and yesterday lodged an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport in a bid to avoid paying up to £30m in damages.

Reports last week suggested that the Hammers could hit by fresh compensation claims from individual Sheffield United players, who missed out on

up to £500,000 each following relegation.

But Morgan has dismissed reports that the Blades players are discussing legal action.

He said: "There's been no meeting that I'm aware of that's taken place with any players this week.

"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. We've not even thought about it.
