West Ham have rejected a suggestion from Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn to consider ground-sharing at the Olympic Stadium.

Hearn has been a fierce critic of West Ham's bid to become stadium tenants after the Olympics but said recently he would consider a ground-share arrangement for his League One club. The Hammers insist there have been no talks about such a possibility - nor will there be.

"West Ham United has not held talks with Leyton Orient in respect of ground-sharing and nor is it our intention to do so," a club statement said.
