West Ham deal still on: InterMarket consortium look to seal £100m deal

West Ham could be sold for £100million by the end of the week despite the sudden death of the prospective buyer's chief executive, InterMarket's Jim Bowe.

The consortium, understood to be made up of West Ham fans and backed by a division of Deutsche Bank, say they will have funds to complete the deal by tomorrow and head off rival bids by ex-Birmingham owners David Sullivan and David Gold and Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes.

On the market: West Ham could be sold for £100m

InterMarket have asked for extra time to finalise the buyout following the death of Bowe, 59, at his home in North Carolina on Sunday.

West Ham and Millwall expect to find out today what action the FA will take over the crowd violence which marred their Carling Cup tie in August.
