Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky is considering the purchase of a minority stake in West Ham United, The Athletic understands. The 46-year-old, who is known as the “Czech Sphinx” because of his inscrutable investment style, is expected to buy 27 per cent of the Premier League club initially but may eventually take a majority stake at a later date. This deal, which has been months in the making, would therefore spell the beginning of the end of West Ham’s so-called “GSB” era, a reference to their majority owners and co-chairmen David Gold and David Sullivan and vice-chair Karren Brady, who have controlled the club since 2010.
