Technicality Won't Halt European Dream
West Ham have been granted an extended deadline for the UEFA license needed to play in Europe. The original deadline was the 30th April, which West Ham couldn't meet because of uncertainly over the club's ownership.
The ownership of the club will change at the end of the season, either because the club has been sold or because control of the club has passed to Icelandic bank Straumer. West Ham now have until the end of the season to complete the application.
