West Ham laugh off talks of Orient groundshare

West Ham have dismissed suggestions they could share the Olympic Stadium with League One Leyton Orient. Orient chairman Barry Hearn, who has previously criticised the Hammers' plans , told BBC Sport he would be interested in a possible ground share.

But the Hammers insist they are not considering such an arrangement.

"West Ham United has not held talks with Leyton Orient in respect of ground sharing and nor is it our intention to do so," their statement said.

"We do not wish to comment on recent statements made by Barry Hearn not least because we can't keep up with his ever-changing position.

"They continue, however, to provide us with a constant source of amusement."
