David Gold has revealed that he has no plans to sell West Ham despite a turbulent season that has seen the club fail to live up to expectations.
The Hammers fanbase are not happy over the move to the London Stadium from Upton Park, and there’s frustration that Bilic didn’t buy a striker in January.
Replying to a fan on his personal Twitter account, co-owner Gold was adamant in stating that he is not looking to sell the club and that there are “no plans” in place to do so.
@davidgold Mr Gold how are the board going to sort out the problems at West Ham or are you just waiting to sell the club for profit

The Hammers have endured a difficult season under manager Slaven Bilic’s stewardship, which has seen them fail to replicate the heights of the 2015-16 campaign.
Sitting in a lowly 12th place, Bilic’s side have already suffered six more losses than last season, despite playing nine less league games.
The east London outfit have also lost last season’s player of the year Dimitri Payet, who returned to Marseille in January in a deal worth £25million.
Three straight losses have compounded the Hammers poor season, with the Mirror claiming that pressure is now beginning to mount on former Croatia manager Bilic’s shoulders.
West Ham are next in action against relegation-threatened Hull City, as they travel to the KCOM Stadium on April 1 after the international break.
Three points would come as welcome relief to Gold, Bilic and fans alike, potentially moving them into ninth place if Southampton, Bournemouth and Stoke all drop points.
In other West Ham news, Sofiane Feghouli believes his side must do this to hit end-of-season target.
