Agent Threatens West Ham Owner

The Co-owner of Premier League club West Ham, 64 year old David Sullivan claims to have been threatened with physical violence by an agent during the January transfer window, who he has chosen not to name.

He likened agents to ‘scavengers’ and claimed that they will jump through hoops to get on other peoples deals.

“In this window, I have had an agent threaten me and threaten one of our West Ham players with physical violence, because he thought he was being cut out of a deal,” Sullivan told The Daily Mail.

“I heard of three or four agents trying to jump in on other deals. Some of these people are like scavengers.

“It was all deeply unpleasant and I’m glad it’s over. Now we can get on with the football.”

He went on to agree with a comment that Harry Redknapp had made on the business, which he likened to ‘gang warfare’
