Tony Cottee reckons David Sullivan will eventually sell West Ham
Tony Cottee has told the Where’s Jeff Podcast that he reckons David Sullivan will eventually sell West Ham United amid interests from PAI Capital.
The consortium have been linked with an interest in taking over the London Stadium outfit, and they have had a £400million bid knocked back by the Hammers majority owner [Daily Mail].
PAI had plans to table a new bid last week but decided against doing it due to the summer transfer window.
They have decided to wait till West Ham are done with businesses, and an official offer is expected any moment from now.
Given the transfer deadline,PAI don’t want to distract the Club’s owners from finalising any transfers before the window closes so we are holding back the bid until next week.We see this move in the Club’s best interests,and it does not change our intentions to get our deal done!

PAI recently recruited Cottee to join forces with Rio Ferdinand and Anton Ferdinand in backing their bid to buy the club, and he is convinced they have what it takes to move the club forward.
The Hammers legend told Where’s Jeff? Podcast: “I think he will sell eventually. Over the next few weeks, there could be a few developments.
“David Sullivan and David Gold, to a point they have done a good job, and they have taken the club to where they have taken the club.
“But the people I have spoken to, I am speaking about PAI Capital obviously. They approached me and I spoke to them and I am usually apprehensive, but I went there as a fan, I asked about the stadium, the training ground and most importantly, how much money they will spend on new players, and if I did not like the answers I would not have backed them publicly.
“I honestly believe these guys can take the club forward.”
Cottee “thinks” Sullivan will eventually sell, and he must have been convinced that PAI’s new bid would convince him before reaching such a decision.
It is known that GSB are not interested in selling their most prized possession, but their hands could be forced if a huge offer that is more than tempting is brought to the table.
Once they present their bid, the consortium will most likely be updating the Hammers fans on social media as they have done with every of their move, and there could be some interesting weeks ahead.
Cottee and the Ferdinand brothers have all been briefed about the transfer businesses and stadium and training ground improvements that the bidders have on the cards, and the plans sound exciting.
West Ham deserve new owners and the fans will hope PAI are actually the answer and messiah.
Only time will tell what they really are.
