Richard Caborn, Premier League chairman and England's minister of sport, has revealed that West Ham United, the subject of countless takeover rumors over the past few months, has entered into "serious negotiations" over the possibility of moving into London's 2012 Olympic Stadium after the Games. It has long been speculated that either West Ham or Tottenham Hotspur would move into the stadium following the 2012 Olympics, though it appears that Spurs have now taken themselves out of the running after sporting director Damien Comolli said Tottenham had no interest in moving into a stadium "with a track around the pitch." Contrary to earlier reports, Caborn insists his involvement in the negotiations has nothing to do with the rival takeover bids being mounted for West Ham. "It is completely untrue and totally without foundation to say that I am either supporting or am in any way involved in a potential bid for West Ham," Caborn said, adding, "I've have not had any contact with either of the reported bidders at any point - nor would I if they approached me as this would be totally inappropriate." West Ham's public relations consultant Phil Hall, who also represent Kia Joorabchian, one of the presumed bidders for the club, said no meeting had been planned with either Eli Papouchaldo or Eggert Magnusson, the bidders Caborn alluded to in his statement.
