West Ham United co-owner Sullivan hopeful of more signings, fans react

West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan and his partner David Gold are not the most loved figures at the London Stadium.

Fans regularly criticise the businessman over their running of the club, in particular transfer strategy.

Manager David Moyes is overseeing his first window since taking over from Slaven Bilic as permanent manager in November.

So far, the East London outfit have recruited one new player in the form of Joao Mario, who has signed on loan for the rest of the season from Inter Milan.

The fans are keen for the Hammers to continue spending in this window, and Sullivan has been quick to deny reports that there are no more funds available.

In a statement released by the club’s official website, the businessman said:

“I have been made aware of reports suggesting that there will be no more players joining the Club this month due to funding not being available. Nothing could be further from the truth. The manager David Moyes has the Board’s full backing in this window and, together, we continue to work night and day to bring in players to add quality and depth to the squad, despite January being a difficult time to do business.”

As expected, supporters have been reacting to Sullivan’s claims by posting their thoughts on Twitter.

Meanwhile, West Ham have bid farewell to Diafra Sakho, who has joined Rennes in an £8m deal.
