The Guardian claimed back in September that a US based consortium had a £350 million bid for the Hammers rejected. They then suggested that a £400 million bid was made, and rejected again.

ExWHUemployee poured cold water on those claims at the time, however, suggesting that there has been no concrete bids for West Ham.

And the West Ham insider poked fun at claims made by certain people suggesting that the east London outfit would have new owners by January at the latest, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast last night:

“If you are to believe all the stuff that was emerging a couple of months ago we have one month and 12 days until we have new owners. We were told by the secret agent that we would definitely have new owners by January. There has never ever been an official offer. There has been an email exchange mooting figures. And that was it. Nothing has changed.”

West Ham’s current owners David Gold and David Sullivan are far from popular with the club’s fans.

And the duo’s lack of investment in the playing staff recently has really angered the Hammers fanbase.

If David Moyes is to take West Ham to another level, he needs to be backed in the transfer market. And if the owners aren’t capable of providing the Scot with the platform to succeed, they should sell up. It really is as simple as that.

Judging by Ex’s claims last night, however, that won’t be happening anytime soon.
