Chief executive Richard Scudamore says the Premier League will be "more circumspect" with clubs after the Carlos Tevez saga.

Tevez, 23, completed a protracted move from West Ham to Manchester United on Friday after a dispute over the economic rights to the Argentine.

"West Ham have admitted that they were not clean and open with us last August when they signed Tevez," Scudamore told BBC Five Live's Sportsweek programme.

West Ham were fined £5.5m in April over the signings in August 2006 of Tevez and Javier Mascherano, who has since joined Liverpool.
