‘Open to selling’ the club? West Ham owners may want to sell

According to news, West Ham United owners David Gold and David Sullivan are reported to be open to selling the club.

The pair were formerly owners of the City of Birmingham. Up to 2009, when each shareholder sold all of their remaining shares in the club, they were involved with the West Midlands club.

The pair purchased a 50 percent stake in West Ham United in January 2010. Later that year, their ownership of the Hammers was extended further, as their share of the club was raised to 60 percent overall.
At the club, Gold and Sullivan had a turbulent ten years. Throughout their tenure, the owners have been very controversial, with frequent demonstrations taking place both inside and outside the London Stadium.

West Ham did not have the best summers of wise transformation, which exacerbated the pressure on the owners. Just Slavia Prague duo Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal have been signed by the Hammers so far this summer.

They had hoped to sign a new center-back, but offers for James Tarkowski and Fikayo Tomori failed.

Now, Gold and Sullivan have agreed, according to The Athletic, that they would sell the club if a successful offer came in to sell their shares.

The report adds that the Hammers will be playing down any suggestion that the club could be sold. But they would listen privately to offers that could come in.
