Olympic Stadium deal near


It looks as if a deal for West Ham United to move into the Olympic Stadium is near completion.   A set of proposals is to be put to the London Legacy Development Corporation next Tuesday.

The main oustanding issue was the insistence of London mayor Boris Johnson on a share of the profits if the club was sold.   It looks as if the club has given ground on this issue, but the owners have stated that they have no intention of selling anyway.
