West Ham United owners David Gold and David Sullivan are said to be open to selling the club, according to reports.
The duo had previously been owners of Birmingham City. They were involved with the West Midlands club up until 2009 when each shareholder sold all of their remaining stakes in the club.
In January 2010, the pair acquired a 50% stake in West Ham United. Their control at the Hammers was expanded further later that year, as their share of the club was increased to 60% overall. Gold and Sullivan have had a tumultuous ten years at the club. The owners have been very unpopular throughout their tenure, with regular protests taking place both inside and outside of the London Stadium.
Their popularity was not helped when they made the decision to move West Ham out of Upton Park and into the London Stadium from 2016/17 onwards. Now according to The Athletic, Gold and Sullivan have decided that they would sell the club should a good offer come in to sell their shares.
The report adds that any suggestion that the club could be sold will be played down by the Hammers. But privately they would listen to offers that could come in.
