The latest round of a fight over the future of the Olympic stadium is due to take place at the High Court on Wednesday – amid reports Tottenham are on the verge of dropping their legal challenge to take the arena over after the 2012 Games.
On Tuesday night it was reported Tottenham officials were involved in “intense negotiations” with London mayor Boris Johnson’s office over plans to build a new stadium near their current home.
