David Sullivan and David Gold have won the takeover battle of West Ham United.

David Sullivan and David Gold have won the takeover battle of West Ham United.

The Daily Mail says the pair have sealed a deal worth £105million for 50 per cent of the club and will take on their debts.

Manager Gianfranco Zola will be given a chance to prove himself to the former Birmingham City owners, who have promised to invest in the squad before the end of the month.

Strengthening West Ham’s threadbare attack is the priority and money is available immediately to fund moves for Manchester City’s Benjani and Monaco’s Eidur Gudjohnsen.

Sullivan and Gold will also push ahead with plans to relocate from Upton Park to the Olympic Stadium after the London Games in 2012.
