Karren Brady looks set to exit West Ham United amid takeover twist at Birmingham City

Karren Brady looks set to leave the board at West Ham to return to Birmingham City, according to Sunday People journalist Neil Moxley.

Laurence Bassini is trying to complete a takeover at the Championship club and he took to national radio on Wednesday (15 June) to confirm when his board of directors will be announced.

It was strongly suggested in his interview with Jim White and Simon Jordan that West Ham’s vice-chairman Brady will be returning to St Andrew’s to take up a similar role.

“There is going to be two chairmen that are senior football people,” said Bassini on talkSPORT on 15 June, as transcribed by BirminghamLive.

“I’m not saying who I’m bringing in. I will name the board at a press conference and they will all be there.

“There is a woman that will be vice chairman that is a highly respected person. There will be a CEO with vast experience.”

Moxley reported via his personal Twitter account later on Wednesday that it’s strongly suggested by Bassini that the woman in question is Brady.

He said: “Sounds very much like it, doesn’t it? Vastly-experienced female with connections to [David Sullivan]? Points in one direction, doesn’t it?”

Statement due

West Ham fans are owed some clarity on this.

We feel for Birmingham fans because Bassini’s track record is an absolute stain on English football club ownership and they deserve a lot better after what they’ve been through in the last couple of decades.

As with Sullivan and Brady, where does this leave West Ham?

If Sullivan is on his way out, we should be told. And the same goes for Brady too.

And what happens with David Gold in all of this?

West Ham fans have spent years calling for GSB to leave the club and while it looks as though the wheels are in motion for that to happen soon, you’d have thought they’d at least go out with some kind of clarity.

Daniel Kretisnky could become our new full owner off the back of this news and that’s something we’re completely up for with the Czech billionaire bound to be an improvement on a board that sold the soul of West Ham United.

David Moyes has the Irons back on track. He needs to be backed if West Ham are going to continue in that direction.

In other West Ham news, the Irons have been offered the chance to sign this £12.8million goal machine after his club was relegated.
