Spurs announced back in April that they plan to move into a new 56,000 capacity, £400 million stadium - which is currently entitled the Northumberland Park Development project – by 2017.

However, Levy revealed to the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust that the club could be forced to ground share for at least one full Premier League season if the expected move-in date is delayed.

He stated that, unless Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, swiftly settles on a resolution to a public inquiry that opened last April, Spurs will be forced into sharing either Wembley, MK Dons’ stadiummk or the Olympic Stadium, of which will be home to West Ham from the 2016/17 onwards.

Levy told fans that the ground-share would become increasingly likely should a Compulsory Purchase Order on land that Spurs require is delayed any longer.
