There will be no shortage of takers if West Ham United is ever put up for sale by co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold. 

That’s according to former Leeds United man Noel Whelan, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the potential sale of the London club.

This site revealed on Monday that Sullivan and Gold are open to selling the Hammers, with discussions held with a number of interested parties.

David Sullivan and David Gold have owned West Ham for six years

Gold and Sullivan bought West Ham in 2010 but the duo are open to selling the club and are standing firm on their £600million valuation.

Whelan claims the location of West Ham will have plenty of investors interested in a potential purchase if Gold and Sullivan are serious about selling the club.

“There will be no shortage of takers if and when West Ham goes up for sale,” Whelan told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.

“That is a very desirable club to own. A London based club will always be an attractive option to investors.

“They’ve got the London Stadium as well. That wouldn’t put anyone off a potential purchase it has to be said. 

“I’m sure there would be a lot of investors queueing up and being very curious about that one if the opportunity to buy the club was ever there.”
