CandH Exclusive by Hughie Southon


West Ham’s owners have no desire to sell the club to Daniel Kretinsky next year.

There has been much speculation that the club could find its way into the Czech Republic shareholder’s hands in April as the London Stadium as has been expected by many.

The club is in a position to do so but we understand that David Sullivan has no desire to sell any of his shares making it impossible for Kretinsky to take control with David Gold keen to hold onto a substantial amount.

Sullivan currently has 38.8 per cent, Gold 25.1, the Czech billionaire 27 per cent, with the remainder being held by various groups and individuals.

It had beeb widely believed by many that Kretinsky was ready to make a bid and that is not impossible according  to our sources but we were told categorially that Sullivan has no desire to sell and with the club making strides forward GSB are very keen to remain in the current position.
