The head of the consortium hoping to attempt a takeover of Premier League club West Ham remains committed to buying the club. The current West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold have made it clear that they have no intention of selling. The former mentioned that they have received no formal offers for the club. former QPR chief executive Philip Beard who is heading the bid refutes these claims. He revealed that the consortium had met the asking price and even provided proof of funds.
“It is not my intention to engage in a public debate on the comments made by David Sullivan last week but, upon advice, it is necessary to correct unhelpful and inaccurate statements,” Beard said in a statement about Premier League club West Ham. “In response to David Sullivan’s comments about the nature and value of the bid put forward by the consortium, I can confirm that a formal offer was made which was in fact the figure that David Sullivan had initially asked for.”
“Our city lawyers were instructed and David Sullivan was provided with a proof of funds,” he added. “At no point were we asked to produce further information about our football strategy. It was quite clear to me that David Sullivan’s sole focus was on price. “We remain committed to pursuing opportunities to purchase the club. We have been actively working on this for over six months and have a strong vision for the club.”
“It is backed by prominent personalities in the sport, as well as West Ham legends who love the club and want to play a role in its development.” Beard continued. “We wholeheartedly welcome their support and hope that we will, together, have the opportunity to deliver the project that we have planned.”
