West Ham, under new ownership following a takeover by David Gold and David Sullivan, could leave their Boleyn Ground stadium, currently used extensively for events and corporate hospitality, following the Olympics.

Sullivan has expressed interest in moving to the Olympic site, and the chief executive of OPLC has responded by saying his group will "put in a place a process which will allow appropriate uses for the Stadium to be brought forward".

Ideas and recommendations, which are sure to include a range of events, will them be submitted to London mayor Boris Johnson and the Government.

"It is very encouraging that there is great interest and enthusiasm in the future use for the Stadium. It is already a dominant structure on London's landscape and offers fantastic opportunities to fulfil its Olympic legacy," said OPLC CEO Andrew Altman.

 "We are perfectly clear that the future of this valuable public asset is secured in a way which allows the best opportunities to come forward and at the same time offer the best value for money for the public purse."
