Leeds fans react to speculation experienced PL man joining from West Ham

By Harry Sykes

West Ham executive Angus Kinnear is reportedly in line to join Leeds United – and fans on Twitter are speculation he will be appointed the club’s new chief executive.

The Telegraph claim the experienced Premier League man, who is marketing director at the Hammers after holding similar posts during a lengthy spell at Arsenal, 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.

The reportedly imminent arrival of Kinnear comes at a time of considerable change off the pitch at Leeds as co-owner Andrea Radrizzani prepares to complete control of the club.

The Telegraph do not state the role that Kinnear will take on at Leeds, although there were rumours among the supporters on Monday that he could replace the current chief executive Ben Mansford.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The official West Ham website states that Kinnear is one of the most senior figures at the club, placing him in the third tier of officials behind co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, and second-tier powerbrokers Karren Brady, the vice-chairman, and Andy Mollett, the chief financial officer.

Kinnear joined the east London club 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.

There is plenty of movement behind the scenes at Leeds amid reports that erratic co-owner Massimo Cellino will step aside following the club’s failure to secure promotion to the Premier League.

In other Leeds United news, a stunning £14million bid is being prepared as deal edges closer with Premier League big hitters.
