West Ham are expected to be named preferred bidders for the Olympic Stadium today even though a final agreement over costs may not be settled.

Talks on securing an agreement deal that would see the Hammers named as the preferred bidders were expected to continue right until the start of today's meeting of the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) board.

Senior sources on the board have told the Press Association they remain very hopeful that an agreement will be reached despite a funding gap of around £20million.
