Tottenham's attempts to derail West Ham's move to Stratford are in tatters this morning after it was announced that the decision to award use of the Olympic Stadium to United has been upheld.
Independent investigators were called in after a newspaper accused West Ham of corruption due to personal links between an employee of the club and a member of the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC).
However forensic accountants acting on behalf of investigators Moore Stephens have concluded that there is no evidence to suggest that the relationship had any bearing on the decision to award use of the £500million stadium to West Ham post the 2012 games.
Tottenham, who are set to continue to flog a dead horse with their request for a judicial review - despite both this and a previous investigation commissioned by West Ham into the affair having returned 'no evidence' verdicts - take their case to the High Court this Wednesday.
