West Ham United joint-chairman David Sullivan has moved quickly to rubbish suggestions that he and co-chairman David Gold are actively seeking to sell their shares in the Hammers.
An article in a national newspaper today suggests Sullivan and Gold are 'looking to sell part of their stake in the club', but Sullivan slammed the story as "utterly false".
"It is no secret that both David Gold and I see our long term futures as custodians of West Ham United," Sullivan told whufc.com.
"We have never once viewed West Ham United as a short term project and plan to be here for many, many years, bringing further progress to the Club on and off the pitch, and success to our loyal supporters.
"It disappoints me to see an article published that is so utterly false."
