Orient propose groundshare of Olympic Stadium with West Ham

Chairman Barry Hearn says League One Leyton Orient he would be interested in a possible ground share of the Olympic Stadium with Premiership West Ham United.

Chairman Barry Hearn says League One Leyton Orient he would be interested in a possible ground share of the Olympic Stadium with Premiership West Ham United.

He told BBC Sport: "Subject to the changes West Ham are asking for, namely covering the running track, we'd be interested in bidding for the stadium as part of a ground-share with them.

"We will now talk with the Olympic authorities."

Hearn had previously considered moving to the Olympic Stadium, but withdrew on the basis that it was "not fit for football".

The London Legacy Development Corporation has extended the tenancy bidding process until after the Games.
