West Ham in talks to buyout UK Athletics from London Stadium

West Ham are in talks to transform London Stadium into more football friendly.

The club are in talks with UK Athletics over a deal that would see the arena become a permanent venue for football, says The Sun.

Currently West Ham’s home in east London is still sparingly used for athletics events.

The Anniversary Games are held at the venue every summer, and were pledged to be staged there for 50 years during London’s bid for the 2012 Olympics.

But there are discussions that could see UKA move elsewhere in the country and subsequently make the London Stadium a full-time football ground.

Talks are at an early stage regarding a deal worth around £10-15million for UKA to permanently move homes.

And if the Hammers cough up the cash, they would then be free to redesign the stadium however they see fit.
