Spurs fans seem happy with the reports Nike are to start producing their kit from next season.

Reports are suggesting that Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal for their kits to be manufactured by Nike from the start of next season.

ESPN is reporting that the deal is now in place for Nike to take over from Under Armour ahead of next season.

The Nike deal will reportedly bring them in line financially with Arsenal, who currently receive around £30 million-a-year from Puma for their sponsorship rights.

It will also increase speculation that Nike may have a part in naming the new Spurs stadium currently under construction.

Of course Nike are synonymous with the success of North London rivals Arsenal – who they sponsored throughout most of the Arsene Wenger era. Spurs will be hoping to have similar success in Nike kits as Arsenal did in recent years.

They will also join Chelsea in switching to Nike for the start of the new season.

Under Armour have made some decent Tottenham strips during their time as suppliers but may never be forgiven for their sash shirt from last season – which got mixed reviews from fans.

Here is how fans reacted to the news that Spurs will be sponsored by Nike going forward…
