Kinnear makes Championship switch

Filed: Tuesday, 2nd May 2017
By: Staff Writer

West Ham United Managing Director Angus Kinnear is set to leave the club at the end of the season in order to take up a position with Championship side Leeds United.

Former Arsenal employee Kinnear, who was largely tasked with the club's heavily-criticised migration from Upton Park to Stratford is poised to move to Elland Road this summer, just a year after West Ham's move to the Olympic Stadium and four years after taking up the role.

Kinnear pictured in Lagos last October

Prior to joining the Hammers, Kinnear - pictured above during a trip to Africa last October during which he handed out a 35,000 donation to Nigerian Premier League club Ifeanyi Ubah FC - spent a decade as Marketing and Sales Director at Arsenal.

He is also a member of the Board of the Commonwealth Games England.

Last week West Ham's offices at the Olympic Stadium were raided by HMRC officers in relation to an international investigation into tax evasion. It is unknown whether Kinnear's departure is related to the incident.
