West Ham chairman warns rivals no stars will be sold this January

West Ham United chairman David Sullivan is adamant that none of his star players will be leaving in the January transfer window, Mirror reports.

The Hammers have performed brilliantly this season sitting fourth in the Premier League, and are ambitiously looking to stay there by the end of the campaign.

Sullivan has therefore advised the country’s bigger clubs that he will not be selling any first-team players next month, whatever the offer.

He said: “In January there is not any price we would sell any players for. First team players will not be sold.

“We are happy where we are, we don’t want to unsettle the team, we are short of numbers with the Africa Cup of Nations and I can’t imagine any circumstances where we would sell a player in January.”

The Irons chairman did however explain the club will listen to offers for fringe players, and that there will not be any panic buys this winter.

“We’d sell a squad player because we are looking at bringing players in in Janaury. But we’ve got the luxury of buying for the future. Normally we are buying through panic but not on this occasion.”

West Ham’s five game unbeaten run will come into jeopardy when they travel to face Chelsea in Friday’s Boxing Day clash.
