West Ham win Olympic bid - reports

West Ham are in the box seat to take control of the London Olympic Stadium ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, according to widespread reports.

• Sullivan hits back at Levy
• Brewin: The battle for Stratford
• Blog: Huzzah for the new stadium

The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) are expected to nominate the Hammers as the preferred bidders on Friday and ask that the OPLC board backs the decision, which must then be ratified by the London mayor and the government.

An OPLC spokesman said: "It is pure speculation to say that a decision has been made. Our board meets on Friday. There will be presentations by OPLC officers of both bids and a vote to recommend a preferred bidder."

West Ham's intent to keep the running track in place and use the stadium for concerts and other sports is believed to have pushed them ahead of Tottenham, who would instead tear down the existing structure and rebuild a football-specific stadium on its site.

A bitter war of words has been waged by the two Premier League clubs in recent weeks in their tussle to win the right to claim ownership of the stadium following the Olympics in 2012.

Both Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and West Ham co-owner David Sullivan put forth their visions for the site in columns in the London Evening Standard this week, while Sullivan further told ESPNsoccernet that awarding the stadium to his club "works for West Ham United and all of London".

Part of the London team's successful bid for the 2012 Games was its pledge to provide an athletics legacy and to help reinvigorate the surrounding area of London's East End. West Ham's multi-purpose vision fulfils that pledge better than Tottenham's compromise of revamping the Crystal Palace athletics facilities.

If West Ham's bid is successful as now appears likely, Tottenham will be forced to return to plans to redevelop White Hart lane.
