West Ham To Receive Fourth Bid
West Ham should learn today what punishment they face following the trouble in the West Ham vs Millwall game. Both clubs face the prospect of heavy fines and West Ham could even be forced to play games behind closed doors, although the later is seen as being unlikely.
The Guardian are reporting that West Ham could receive a fourth bid to buy the club from an unnamed American bidder. So far the bids to buy West Ham have come from David Gold and David Sullivan, the Intermarket Group and Tony Fernandes.
The unnamed North American has completed due diligence but is as yet undecided over whether to make a formal approach. The Guardian claim that the American is Straumur's preferred choice for ownership of the club, as he is seen as the safest long-term bet by the consortium of five banks who have loaned money to the club.
The Daily Mail claim that West Ham have sounded out Aston Villa about buying back Marlon Harewood.
