Amidst the recent reshuffle of power at West Ham in recent days, following the purchase of 27% of shares by Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky, it has been revealed that David Sullivan’s sons have been appointed to members of the board.

It is unclear at this stage the significance of the move, however it could well be a further sign of the ‘stepping back’ from David Sullivan, following his controlling shares now gone from 51% to 38% and the appointment of a new Head of Recruitment at the club.

The next 12 months will certainly be interesting in terms of how the club is now run, with Sullivans controlling influence no longer a power it once was.

In addition to the Sullivan sons joining the board, David Golds son in law, Daniel Cunningham, has also been enlisted.
