West Ham takeover report is nonsense


West Ham is not for sale, contrary to a report from the Daily Mail, according to Claret & Hugh. 

A piece from the national outlet on Friday evening suggested that Hammers were exploring a potential takeover, but that David Sullivan’s £600 million asking price was putting buyers off.

But responding to those claims, a club insider has vehemently denied the rumours.

Speaking to Claret & Hugh, they said: West Ham is not for sale, unless it’s the King of Saudi Arabia or similar, we’ve always said the same thing.


Where this story has come from is anybody’s guess, but it’s fair to say that the Hammers have out the dampeners on it pretty quickly. Perhaps that is for the best. If you’d asked supporters a couple of years ago, they probably would have been all for new owners to try and revitalise a side that was running round in ever-decreasing circles, but there has been a real sea change in east London recently, and it would surely be unwise for Gold and Sullivan to head off any time soon. Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Everton was disappointing, of course, but looking beyond that result, things have been much, much better for West Ham this season. They have a manager who can mix it with the very best, a group of young exciting players with plenty of talent and potential, and this season feels like it could be the beginning of some really decent times in the capital.
