Fernandes to buy into West Ham?

Team Lotus boss Tony Fernandes has revealed on Twitter that he has put in a bid for English soccer club West Ham United.

West Ham has just been relegated from the British Premier League and the news of Fernandes' interest is apparently news to owner David Gold and new manager Sam Allardyce, who has just taken on the job having been assured of the club's stability.

Gold said that he is always interested in potential investment in the club and is prepared to sit down with Fernandes, but is not sure whether he would be prepared to sell the club outright.
