Gold and Sullivan's stance on potential West Ham takeover

Gold and Sullivan

Middle Eastern takeovers seem to be the order of the day in the Premier League at the moment.

Newcastle have been waiting ten and a half weeks for their takeover from the Prince Investment Fund to finally go through but according to The Athletic, that could finally happen very soon.

However, West Ham are now at the centre of their very own takeover saga.

The Daily Mail revealed this week that they are the subject of interest from a high-powered United Arab Emirates group.

Though, whether the club are willing to do a deal hasn't really been too known until now.

Following those claims a few days ago, The Daily Star have now offered an update on the initial reports.

In their piece, it detailed whether David's Gold and Sullivan were willing to sell to the Middle East.

Their suggestions were emphatic, however, claiming that the duo were not actively looking to sell the club, landing a blow to those who potentially wanted a change of ownership.

The Hammers have been owned by Gold and Sullivan since January of 2010 but that doesn't look like it's going to change another ten years on.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

Gold and Sullivan have come in for some huge amounts of criticism this season, as too has Karren Brady.

The trio, more commonly known as GSB, were the centre of a protest earlier in the campaign where thousands marched against the current ownership, seemingly in disgust at the way the club had been run.

A poor run of results was also to blame as the club slipped further and further down the table.

David Moyes, a particularly uninspiring managerial appointment, has failed to improve matters and the Hammers are in real danger of going down.

Therefore, perhaps a change at the very top is what's needed.

Since Gold and Sullivan became joint-owners, there has been a distinct lack of improvement with the Irons flirting with the bottom of the top-flight.

A qualifying campaign for the Europa League has been the pinnacle but since then, things have been going downhill.

Not even a summer where they smashed their transfer record to sign Seb Haller improved matters.

For West Ham, it's a dark place at the moment. Perhaps a fresh cash injection from the Middle East is what's needed?
