Gold won't consider selling West Ham

David Gold has no plans to sell West Ham United should they move to the Olympic stadium.

Gold has been working hard for the last three years along with David Sullivan and vice-chairman Karren Brady to help the Hammers win the race to move into the 60,000 stadium which he believes will help take the club onto a whole new level.

Gold, speaking in the matchday programme, said: "I have seen some suggestions that if we do move to the stadium, David Sullivan and I would look to sell the club on. Let me tell you now that nothing could be further from the truth.

"I first invested in the club I grew up next to more than 20 years ago. After then working so hard to be in a position to be able to buy the club and all of the efforts we have put in to move to Stratford, why would I possibly want to walk away?

"The opportunity to see our club flourish and compete at the top level is something every single West Ham fan should be excited about.

"I know I certainly am and I'm determined to see it through. It will be a fabulous venue and I'm confident that when our supporters finally get to see our plans they will be as thrilled as I am.

"We still have some distance to go before the deal is clinched and while we are looking forward to working with the LLDC to find a final solution, any deal must be right for West Ham and its supporters."
