West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has claimed that an agent threatened him and one of his players with physical violence during the January transfer window.

Just days after QPR boss Harry Redknapp described agents' behaviour as being "like gang warfare", Sullivan says behaviour turned even more sinister.

Sullivan told MailOnline: "In this window, I have had an agent threaten me and threaten one of our West Ham players with physical violence, because he thought he was being cut out of a deal. I heard of three or four agents trying to jump in on other deals. Some of these people are like scavengers."
