The son of West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has rubbished reports that the club are considering a move for Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.
On Tuesday, Sky Sports claimed that the Hammers were not ruling out making a move for the England skipper if he is told by United at the end of the season that he is allowed to look for a new club.
It has been widely speculated that Rooney will seek pastures new in the summer due to his game time being severely limited to just nine Premier League starts.
The 31-year-old was also left out of Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad, despite being the captain, but it seems that West Ham will not be an option for the forward.
While Jack Sullivan is not an official figure within the Hammers hierarchy, he often provides insight into the club’s activities via Twitter.
He recently revealed the extent of injuries suffered to Michail Antonio, Pedro Obiang and Winston Reid, and now he has commented on the Rooney speculation.
The youngster has suggested that the story emanated from an Instagram clip posed by Rooney’s wife Coleen showing their eldest son Kai wearing a West Ham goalkeeping kit with Adrian’s name emblazoned on the back.
