Spurs are refusing to accept defeat after last week's decision by Judge Mr Justice Davis to reject their bid and that of Leyton Orient's.

The club will now have the chance to make a case in an oral hearing at the High Court.

Tottenham said in a statement: "The club has today applied to the High Court to renew its application for permission to bring a claim against the London Borough of Newham and the Olympic Park Legacy Company, the Mayor of London and Government Ministers for judicial review of their decisions underlying the bid process for the conversion of the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games."

The statement added: "Under this process the club now has the opportunity to present its case at an oral hearing at the High Court."
