The Olympic Park Legacy Company has today invited bids from potential tenants of the £500m Olympic stadium with many believing it is already a foregone conclusion.
West Ham United are the standout favourites to become the tenant of the stadium after the Olympics which will have its capacity reduced from 80,000 to 60,000.
The process to find a tenant for a maximum term of 99 years only came about after a deal between West Ham and Newham council to buy the stadium collapsed in October.
And the Mayor of London Boris Johnson has since admitted the likely tenant will be The Hammers.
He said he believes the venue can cover its running costs even if the Hammers do not secure a rental deal.
The article says an agreement has been reached between supporters groups and West Ham vice-chair Karren Brady that a ballot of the club's fans will be held before a bid is submitted to move into the Olympic stadium.
Perhaps it isn't the done deal that everyone seems to think it is...
