Italian enters West Ham bid war

FOOTBALL: Cagliari president Massimo Cellino emerged last night as a possible fourth bidder for West Ham.

Former Birmingham owners David Gold and David Sullivan, finance company Intermarket and Air Asia founder Tony Fernandes also want to buy the club from CB Holdings, who want £100m.

Meanwhile the Hammers will discover tomorrow what punishment they face after being found guilty of two charges of failing to control their fans at August’s Carling Cup tie against Millwall.
