American Consortium In For West Ham


The Intermarket Group, headed by Wall Street mogul Jim Bowe (former head of the New York Board of Trade) are reported to have begun negotiations to buy West Ham. They hope to conclude a deal before the January transfer window. Bowe commented, 'The consortium comprises West Ham supporters who have made serious money in the City, the United States and elsewhere and who see potential in the club, its fanbase, academy and playing staff. The people involved have the money required, and more importantly, the right sentiments.'
