of malaysian tony fernandes makes bid to buy west ham fc

Fernandes claims Hammers offer: Team Lotus Formula One and AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes claims he has made an offer to buy West Ham United.
The 47-year-old Hammers-supporting entrepreneur missed out on buying West Ham last year to current co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold.

Fernandes also rejected the opportunity to form a partnership with Sullivan and Gold as they sought investors.

Fernandes admitted in the wake of their relegation from the Premier League that he would get involved in the club if fans wanted him to and now he has tabled an offer to gain control at Upton Park.
Mr Fernandes tweeted
For all you west ham fans an offer has gone to the present owners of west ham. Let's see if they accept.
West Ham United Joint-Chairman David Sullivan issued a statement posted on the WHUFC website,
We have received an email from Tony Fernandes regarding an offer for a share of the club which has immediately been rejected. He has announced this on Twitter and people can draw their own conclusions as to the seriousness of it from that.

We are not looking to sell the club but, as we have always said, we would love co-investors to join us in rebuilding West Ham United, which has been our aim ever since we took charge back in January 2010.

In the event that a serious investor came forward as was the case at Chelsea and Manchester City, we would naturally consider it for the good of the club - but this is certainly not the case in this instance.

This kind of approach is very unhelpful when we have just made a big step forward as a club in our hope of returning to the Premier League, and it distracts from our main focus which is promotion.
