Tottenham Hotspur latest, club suffers setback with new stadium

White Hart Lane 6

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening, including Lamela and Kane.

Tottenham have confirmed it is 'highly unlikely' they will move into their new stadium in 2017/18 because of High Court challenge to their stadium plans, which will leave the side homeless for a season.

Spurs have reportedly considered several other grounds including Wembley Stadium and Stadium MK in Milton Keynes.

Part of the statement on the club's website read: "Given the lengthy period of time taken to reach the CPO decision in the first place, we should like to advise supporters that it is highly unlikely we shall be able to open the new Stadium at the start of the 2017/2018 season.

"The Club has revised its construction programme in order to take the shortest possible time to construct. This now therefore involves the Club moving away from the Lane during construction for a period of one season, to start at the beginning of a season in order to comply with Premier League rules."

Erik Lamela has been looking ahead to the club's trip to Sunderland at the weekend in the Premier League after a successful international break.

The Argentine scored in his country's 4-2 win over Germany in a friendly but now returns to his club as the side looks to bounce back from the defeat to Liverpool.

He told the club's website: “We will need to show good personality and character at Sunderland and I hope we win this game.”

One other player who showed signs of good form during the international break was striker Harry Kane, who scored his second goal in as many games for the England Under-21s in a 3-0 win over Moldova.
