West Ham vice-chairman Karen Brady has indicated that the club could move to block Tottenham Hotspur should they approach the club for a ground share at the Olympic Stadium, according to the BBC.
The construction timetable has now had to be revised and the club face a season without a home.
West Ham beat Tottenham Hotspur to the Olympic Stadium and move there in 2016 – and appear to be incredibly unreceptive to the idea of sharing with their rivals, who they have had legal disputes with in the past as well.
Brady said: “No-one has asked us for our permission (to ground-share) and if they did we would probably say no, depending on who it is – if you get my drift.
“We are the anchor tenant for the winter matches and nothing else can happen in that time without our permission.”
Even if Tottenham agreed a deal with the London Legacy Development corporation the Hammers look set to deny any share.
Spurs are also looking other sites including Wembley stadium, a 13 mile move from North London, or more incredible StadiumMK in Milton Keynes, a staggering 49 mile trip from their current home.
