Gold & Sullivan to Buy 50% of West Ham
The Sunday Mirror claim that West Ham's owners have agreed to sell 50% of the club to David Sullivan and David Gold.
They say that the £50million deal is still subject to formal ratification but the deal has been agreed in principle and that they will take control of the Upton Park club inside the next seven days.
The Mirror say that the Icelandic owners will retain a 50 per cent stake in the club but will hand effective control of the club to Sullivan and Gold.
The Daily Star and The Daily Express both claim that West Ham don't know whether to play Upson today. They say that he may not play because he will then be cup-tied and will be worth less when they try and sell him.
Over the last few weeks Upson has been linked with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United. Obviously these three clubs would be devastated if Upson was cup-tied as they place such value in the FA Cup and always play their first teams.
