Flocking to Twitter, these West Ham United fans have erupted in response to club insider Claret & Hugh’s financial claim – with the club apparently subject to a ‘major’ multi-million pound investment.
Indeed, as per their source, there is now an opportunity for a new investor to join the existing West Ham shareholders with co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan long making it clear they would welcome other parties to ‘share the financial strain’.
C&H have also been told that agents are acting on behalf of ‘certain third parties’ who are willing to invest and are currently looking at opportunities to do so.
Sullivan, however, would remain the majority shareholder – with this not being a takeover update and more akin to another party investing in a small percentage of the club.
It is claimed that while the Irons are the subject of this possible cash injection, it may still be ‘some weeks away’.
Flocking to this update in response to Twitter account West Ham Central, there were a fair few mixed responses from supporters.

West Ham fans erupt as insider claim emerges…
“If this is true”
“200M warchest this season you say?”
“Ronaldo and Messi at the bowl”
“Gold & Sullivan have realised that if they want to keep the clubs value & even raise it, they need to spend a lot more!
Strong outside investment could take us from a club that might worry about relegation, to consistently pushing top 6 – making us worth over £1billion!”
