Daniel Levy comments on latest stadium boost for Tottenham

The Tottenham Hotspur chairman has spoken following a decision from the Mayor of London.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has been speaking to the club’s official website following the news that the Northumberland Development Project has now received approval from the Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

The project is to build a new stadium that will replace Spurs’ current home ground of White Hart Lane and given Tottenham’s success on the field this season and the exciting next generation of players coming through their ranks, the prospect of a brand new arena is an exciting one for their fans.

Speaking to tottenhamhotspur.com after the news of Johnson’s approval was announced, Levy said, “This marks yet another major milestone for this vital and complex scheme and we are grateful to the Mayor for his ongoing support.

“We remain focused on completing the final stages of the planning process.”

Tottenham are currently second in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Leicester City with 12 matches remaining.

Spurs are also still in the Europa League and their next match comes this evening when they take on Italian side Fiorentina for a place in the last 16 of the competition.

So it seems there are exciting times ahead both on and off the field for the North London club.
