Team Lotus Formula One boss Tony Fernandes claims he has made an offer to buy West Ham United.
The 47-year-old Hammers-supporting entrepreneur missed out on buying West Ham last year to current co-owners David Sullivanand David Gold.
Fernandes also rejected the opportunity to form a partnership with Sullivan and Gold as they sought investors.
Fernandes admitted in the wake of their relegation from the Premier League that he would get involved in the club if fans wanted him to and now he has tabled an offer to gain control at Upton Park.
The Air Asia tycoon posted on Twitter:
“For all you west ham fans an offer has gone to the present owners of west ham. Let’s see if they accept.”
West Ham’s relegation could see the club’s debts soar past the £100 million mark, but it remains to be seen if Gold or Sullivan will decide to sell to Fernandes.
