A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

Tottenham will be able to sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer according to the Daily Mail, but only if Chelsea wrap up a deal for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

The report indicates that Lukaku, who is currently spending the season on loan at Everton, feels his first team chances at Stamford Bridge will be limited under the Chelsea boss, but Mourinho wants to get two new strikers into the club.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has indicated there will be no major overhaul of the squad and that the club has come so far in the last decade.

He is quoted in The Guardian, saying: “This season, we have had to make significant changes, both in respect of coaching and playing staff and yet we are currently only two points less than last season’s tally. Whilst this season’s performances and results have not lived up to expectation, we believe our squad has potential and it is important that we all now show commitment and teamwork to get the best possible finish to the season.”

Levy has also been speaking about plans for Tottenham to leave White Hart Lane to move to a new stadium by 2017.

He’s quoted in the London Evening Standard, saying: "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.”

Finally, Younes Kaboul has denied that he will be leaving the club after reports in the press this morning linked him with a move to fierce rivals Arsenal.

Kaboul took to Twitter to rubbish the reports:
