Levy confirms Tottenham’s stadium build will not impact transfer funds

Daniel Levy

Tottenham Hotspur are in the planning stages of build a new stadium.

Spurs are in the process of building a new stadium to move in from White Hart Lane, and the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust has confirmed that Levy will not take funds away from transfer business to pay for the ground.

As confirmed in the minutes posted on the official THST website, Levy has stated that transfer funds have been ‘ring- fenced’ and will not be encroached upon.

However, this does not mean that Spurs are taking their focus away from the performances on the field of play, but the chairman said that transfers and ambitions will need to be realistic and pragmatic in line with their financial strength.

Spurs have ambitions to qualify for the Champions League and achieve consistent finishes in the Premier League, and moving into a new stadium will guarantee increased financial benefits that can help this.

However, the aim is to achieve this as soon as possible, and Levy has no plans to limit the transfer spending in the coming years to give Spurs the earliest chance of success both on and off the pitch.

There has been a changing of transfer policy in recent years at White Hart Lane, coming more in line with the financial security that Levy wants in North London, and it looks as if the club are starting to finally show what they will be about for the next few years as they attempt to break back into the elite of English football.
