Statement from the FA & PL.....
'The Premier League and Football Association today confirmed that Chelsea FC and Leeds United FC have reached a mutual agreed settlement with regard to an alleged approach to three Leeds United FC Academy players in breach of Premier League and FA Rules.
'Leeds United FC has withdrawn their complaint and the Premier League has been advised by both clubs that any claims and litigation arising out of any alleged improper approach have been settled.
'This resolution is subject to a confidentiality agreement and there will be no further statements.
'Additionally Chelsea FC have undertaken to conduct an internal review of policies and procedures in relation to the recruitment of players, take steps to rectify any shortcomings; take the appropriate action in relation to club personnel, including Premier League approved training, and develop their own code of conduct.
'The Premier League and Football Association accordingly consider the matter closed.'
The fee recieved is thought to be substantial after Ken Bates was caught on camera outside Elland Road claiming that Leeds would recieve £6-7m from the London Club, however the final figure is subject to a confidentiality agreement so i guess we'll never know.
