West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has dismissed reports suggesting he and David Gold want out of the club as "utterly false".
Sullivan, speaking via the club's website was reacting to a story published by the Daily Express, in which author Tony Banks claimed that the pair were seeking to share their stake in West Ham but retain a place on the Board.
But that's simply not true, according to Sullivan - who insisted that neither he nor business partner Gold have any intention of selling up. "It is no secret that both David Gold and I see our long term futures as custodians of West Ham United," he said.
"We have never once viewed West Ham United as a short term project and plan to be here for many, many years. It disappoints me to see an article published that is so utterly false."
