WEST HAM VICE-CHAIRMAN RULES OUT STADIUM SHARE WITH SPURS

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady says the club would likely reject any approach from Tottenham over the share of the Olympic Stadium.

Spurs are currently without a home ground for the 2017/18 season following a delay in their construction plans for White Hart Lane.

The Olympic Stadium, along with the likes of Wembley and stadium:mk have been touted as potential venues for the club to play their home football in three-seasons time.

West Ham secured the right to play at the Olympic showpiece back in March 2013 after a long-disputed battle with Leyton Orient.

Vice chairman Brady admits it is unlikely that the club will share the tenancy of the stadium, as the West Ham fixture schedule would be of utmost importance: “No one has asked us for our permission and, if they did, we would probably say no,” she said.

“We are the anchor tenant for the winter matches and nothing else can happen in that time without our permission and our football matches take priority over everything else.”
