West Ham United legend Martin Peters is backing their stadium move to Stratford.

Peters, who notched 100 goals in his nine seasons in east London, confessed to being envious of those who will have the privilege of playing at the iconic venue.

He told West Ham TV: "There's another three years to go yet, but seeing what the stadium's going to look like, it's going to be a fantastic stadium and a fantastic place to go and play. So it will be brilliant for the supporters and for the players themselves - as long as we win! That's the main thing.

"It will be [one of the best in the country. I've looked at the different things that are set to happen and I wish I was playing.

"All the top teams will be looking forward to playing in the Olympic Stadium, because it's such an outstanding stadium. The supporters are going to be loving it as well, even the away supporters will love it!"
