Alongside the stadium, the complex will be home to a brand new 180-bed hotel, sports and health centre, and an interactive museum of the clubs history.

Developers plan to have the stadium finished ahead of the 2018/19 season.

London Mayor, Boris Johnson said: “White Hart Lane is already an iconic stadium, steeped in history.

“The new venue will not only almost double its capacity, but provide world-class facilities to watch Premier League football, international sports events and concerts in the heart of the capital.”
