West Ham United on verge of agreeing move to Olympic Stadium despite Leyton Orient's legal challenge

West Ham United have reportedly agreed a 99-year deal to move to the Olympic Stadium.
The Hammers were named as the preferred bidder by the London Legacy Development Corporation in December but Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn has launched a legal challenge into the bidding process to become tenants.
According to reports, the Premier League club would have the right to use the stadium for all of their home matches in a 99-year concession deal.
The agreement, which is expected to be officially announced tomorrow, is also likely to pave the way for matches in the 2015 Rugby World Cup to be staged at the stadium.
Hearn has insisted he will admit defeat in his bid to share the stadium if the judicial review fails.
