Spurs have reached agreement with Wembley National Stadium Limited (WNSL) for an extension.

"We shall be carefully monitoring the progress of the construction programme and public sector infrastructure delivery." the club said on their website (

"Our intention remains to spend next season at the national stadium before returning to our new stadium in Tottenham for the 2018/19 season."

Tottenham have received approval from Brent Council to play 27 games at Wembley next season.
