Tottenham could ground share with NFL team, Dembele blasts White Hart Lane pitch

A round up of the key news stories about Tottenham Hotspur this morning.

Tottenham would consider a ground share with a new London based NFL franchise in a new stadium.

Reports have suggested Spurs are looking at the possibility of building a new 65,000 capacity stadium.

Spurs have appointed the same designers that built the Olympic Stadium and Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium as part of their plans.

Spurs midfielder Moussa Dembele says the size of White Hart Lane is contributing to poor home performances.

Dembele says the smaller than average size of the pitch works against the club as they try to break other teams down.

“It’s not easy for us. We know that teams are going to come here and make a block and we don’t have a big pitch so it’s even more difficult,” said the Belgian.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has signed an extension to his current contract with the club.

Walker has extended his deal to 2019, which ties him down to White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future.

“I'm very thankful to the chairman for giving me an extension on the contract and hopefully I can repay him by putting in the performances on the pitch and getting that top-four spot we need,” he told Spurs TV.
