Co-owner David Gold has revealed that West Ham's new training ground plans have been shelved until they find out for sure what division they are playing in next season.

The club were interested in moving from their current base at Chadwell Heath to build a new complex possibly in Rush Green, Romford.

However, in the midst of a relegation battle those plans are not a pressing concern.

"We've got seven games to go. The training ground has somehow slipped my mind," Gold said.
