Orient ´certain´ to have Olympic home

Published Add your comment

Leyton Orient owner Barry Hearn has revealed he is on the brink of clinching a deal which will see the Coca-Cola League One club become residents at the 2012 Olympic stadium.

The Games organisers have been seeking a sports team to move into the £500million stadium in Stratford, east London, which will be downsized to a 25,000 arena after the event.

"I think it is a certainty," Hearns said of the deal to move his club to the stadium. "I take it over for nothing and I give them a legacy is how it works."
