The Tottenham Hotspur supremo had a reason to celebrate on Thursday morning.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has been speaking following the news that Haringey Council has approved the club’s revised plans for a new stadium.

Levy’s comments were published by Spurs’ official Twitter account shortly after the BBC reported that Tottenham are another step closer to having a new 61,000-seat home in time for the 2018-2019 season.

Speaking after the news, Levy said, “This marks another milestone in what’s been a long and often difficult path. We’re grateful to those who expressed their support. It’s crucial we now clear the final steps in the legal process.

“We are very proud to be part of this important step forward for an area that has been our home for more than 130 years.”

The next stage in the process will see the Mayor of London Boris Johnson make his judgement on whether or not to formally approve the plans but according to the BBC’s report that is unlikely to be an issue.

Tottenham are enjoying a wonderful current campaign and find themselves fifth in the Premier League heading into the busy Christmas and New Year fixtures.

While Mauricio Pochettino’s men suffered a blip – and saw their 14-match undefeated streak end – against Newcastle United last weekend there are still plenty of reasons to be happy and the latest news regarding Tottenham’s stadium proposal is yet another.
