West Ham's Karren Brady on Tottenham Hotspur ground share talk

Olympic Stadium 2

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has brushed aside talk of a potential ground share with Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur face looking for a temporary home for the 2017/18 season, but it looks as though West Ham will not be offering theirs up.

Spurs face the possibility due to a legal challenge to their own development and self-set timescale to move out of White Hart Lane.

MK Dons, Wembley, West Ham and even Arsenal had been touted as potential sites for Spurs to ground share for the season.

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has however insisted the club have no plans on such matters. 

Quoted on the club's website, she said: "There has been a lot of discussion among supporters because we are sharing the stadium - not with another football club, but because a lot of other events will go on there - but it still should feel like it's our permanent fixture."

The Hammers it seems have closed the book before it has even opened regarding such a suggestion.

You can hardly blame them either. The two sets of supporters are not exactly fond of each other, and there remains bad blood between the clubs over the whole stadium issue.

Spurs had previously attempted to secure the Olympic Stadium as their own, and there could be a fear that if West Ham open the doors for one season, and then Spurs suffer more delays to their own project, such a temporary favour could drag on, and even become permanent.
