Tottenham consider Wembley move

Tottenham Hotspur are considering making a temporary move to Wembley Stadium after the club had an enquiry to buy Upton Park rejected, according to Sky Sports.

The London club is looking for a temporary location to call home whilst they build a new stadium and hope to stay within the Tottenham area.

Spurs are believed to have made an enquiry about purchasing West Ham’s home ground Upton Park this season, but had the proposed bid rejected and need to seek accommodation whilst their stadium remains under construction until 2017.

"It is a major development that will present ongoing challenges and, subject to these challenges being manageable, we anticipate going out to tender for construction late this year which will make a stadium opening date of summer 2017 feasible,” said a statement on the club’s website.

At just over 36,000, White Hart Lane is one of the smaller stadiums amongst the Premier League clubs and the aim is to build larger to incorporate their fan base.

Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy highlighted the importance of a new stadium for the club and said that they will be building it to accommodate their future ambitions.

"We have fantastic, strong support. Our current 36,000-seater stadium sells out and the waiting list for season ticket holders is currently in excess of 47,000. We cannot stress strongly enough how critical the new stadium is over the long-term to these raised expectations,” said the 52-year-old.

"We have the smallest capacity stadium of any club in the top 20 clubs in Europe, let alone the current top four Premier League clubs, and given we now operate within UEFA Financial Fair Play rules, an increased capacity stadium and associated revenues is fundamental to supporting the future ambitions and consistent achievement at the top of the game."
