Magnusson on the move

United Chairman Eggert Magnusson has shelled out £3m on a brand new Docklands penthouse.

60-year-old Magnusson showed he wasn't short of a few bob when he paid the huge sum for the property - which features marble flooring throughout plus two terraces - just weeks after the club were fined £5.5m by the Premier League.

Robert Weston, speaking for developers Weston Homes, said of Eggy's new pad:

"The penthouse showcases the best in design. The space available at the super penthouse has allowed us to include every imaginable luxury, experimenting with innovative designs giving us the opportunity to develop a space surpassing buyer's expectations."

The Icelandic multi-millionaire has been living in London since last year when he became involved in the bid to purchase West Ham United.

Judging by his latest purchase, it looks like he's here to stay.
