Deal all but done: West Ham senior man close to joining Leeds - report
By Harry Sykes
West Ham executive Angus Kinnear is in line to join Leeds United, according to a report.
The Telegraph claim the experienced Premier League man, who is marketing director at the Hammers, is poised to join United.
It is said Kinnear will be appointed less than a week after Leeds announced the arrival of former Real Madrid senior man Ivan Bravo, who has joined the board of directors.
Kinnear joined West Ham in 2013 after spending nine years at Arsenal, where he had senior sales and marketing roles.
Kinnear was instrumental in Arsenal’s successful move from Highbury to Emirates Stadium, and had similar involvement at West Ham, where the club also had a stadium move from their historic home of Upton Park to London Stadium.
