I made 25m deadline day bid, claims Sullivan

Under fire David Sullivan claimed this morning that he made a transfer deadline day bid for Stoke midfielder Joe Allen.

The co-chairman, who is facing a supporter revolt with fans set to march in their thousands against the Board next month told Sky Sports and Talksport presenter Jim White that he made the huge bid for the Welsh international - an offer that was rejected by his club.

White, who met Sullivan at Brighton on Saturday also revealed that the 68-year-old had appealed to the fanbase for unity - though as several fans pointed out in reply, the fans appear more united presently than they have been for some considerable time due to their collective opposition to the current regime.

The Talksport and Sky presenter was widely criticised by West Ham supporters last week for suggesting Sullivan and his co-chairman David Gold has been "jostled" by supporters following the FA Cup defeat at League One Wigan.

White's comments were followed by another slur on West Ham's travelling supporters by fellow Sky anchor Kaveh Solhekol, who claimed that it was "unacceptable for owners to be treated this way", adding that Sullivan and Gold were "doing all they can" to arrest West Ham's disintegration.
