Breaking news on Sky sports now is that Hull have been charged with fielding an unregistered player at the end of January '09 and now look likely to be relegated from the Premier league.

Apparently when they signed Kamil Zayatte from Young Boys for 2.5M on 23 January this year, there had been some irregularities with the transfer and he was not formerly registered when Hull drew 2-2 with West Brom. West Brom will be awarded 3 points for that game instead of 1 but it has made no difference to them, they are still relegated.

However Hull have been stripped of their point, which puts them on the same points as Newcastle but with a poorer goal difference.
Newcastle have complained immediately to the FA and if the claim is upheld which latest reports suggest that it will, Hull will be relegated retrospectively and the Toon will stay up!

Carlsberg don't do breaking news on Sky sports for delusional Geordies but if they did this would probably be the best breaking news in the world
