West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady was on Wednesday meeting UK Athletics chiefs to discuss the future of the 2012 Olympic Stadium.
UKA confirmed that Brady was holding talks with their chairman Ed Warner over the club's hopes of transforming the venue into a Barclays Premier League stadium after the Games.
The meeting comes ahead of the publication of an Olympic Park Legacy Company document inviting expressions of interest in the stadium's future use.
West Ham had hoped to gain sole use of the venue, but there is growing support for the retention of the athletics track with UKA hoping to land the 2015 World Athletics Championships.
