TalkSPORT presenter and football reporter Jim White has claimed that he recently spoke with one of the owners at West Ham United who insist they’re not happy with being blamed for the club’s struggles but refuse to walk-away.

West Ham got off to an abysmal start in the Premier League after suffering a crushing 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United during their Premier League opener on Saturday.
The London club’s misery was put into the public domain earlier this month when club captain Mark Noble tweeted his anger after the board’s decision to sell top-prospect Grady Diangana to West Brom.
As captain of this football club I’m gutted, angry and sad that Grady has left, great kid with a great future!!!!! https://t.co/oNPPEp8Pt6

However, the latest development in the ongoing turmoil surrounding West Ham comes from Jim White who claims the club’s hierarchy are not yet prepared to walk-away despite feeling frustrated at what White describes as ‘being left out to dry’.
“Just as we came on air, I got a call from one of the owners.”
“They do not like the fact that, in their eyes, they’re being hung out to dry.”
“I said: ‘Are you going to walk away?’ The answer was: ‘Not at the moment.'”
