Leyton Orient chairman Barry Hearn has asked for West Ham's bid to move into the Olympic Stadium to be disqualified and branded it "fundamentally flawed".

West Ham have applied for a 99-year lease of the stadium in Stratford, which will be converted into a 60,000-seat arena following the Games, after the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) reopened the bidding process.

Hearn claims West Ham failed to secure the permission of the Football League before a deadline of March 23 this year, and told BBC Sport: "The argument we have now is that we feel there is a very good case that West Ham may not have satisfied the bid process rules. Under the bid process they have to have permission of the Football League in writing attached to their bid to satisfy the bid criteria."
