West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady held a meeting Mayor of London Sadiq Khan on Monday over the future of the London Stadium, according to a report.
BBC Sport claims that the Hammers are in the middle of a legal battle with their landlords over who should be the one to splash the cash on making the stadium more “supporter friendly”.
It is understood that there is an issue over the sale of beer and availability of Sky TV from within the stadium, which West Ham pay £2.5million-a-year for in a deal with London Legacy Development Corporation.
Brady is said to have brought up the issue with Khan on Monday when the pair met.
The under-fire Hammers chief was also said to have discussed how the club is currently poised to make a loss of £140million over the next 10 years due to the financial viability of the stadium.
Football Insider verdict
It’s hard to tell what is worse at West Ham at the moment – on-field issues, or those off it. Against Burnley, the off-field ones managed to spill over on to the pitch as it become clear that fans a seriously unhappy with the way that the club is being run. At the moment, there is nothing that can be done to stop this and David Moyes must be trusted with what he has to get the club out of the relegation mix. Off the pitch, Brady, Dave Gold and David Sullivan must be working over-time on clearing up this issue with the stadium as quite frankly, it’s an embarrassment. If only Upton Park had not been levelled.
In other West Ham news, Moyes must unleash this rarely-seen £10million player after the international break.
