TOTTENHAM yesterday confirmed their intention to build a new 60,000-capacity stadium near their current White Hart Lane ground, writes Patrick Mooney.
Tottenham announced the Northumberland Development Project at the same time as their financial results to June 2008.
The development will include leisure facilities, public space and housing.
"The scheme includes the current site and adjoining land, with the stadium sited to the north of the existing one," explained Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

For the year ending June 30 turnover was up 11 per cent and the building of a new training centre is expected to start next year. Revenue was up from £103m to £114.8m with net debt of £14.6m though that figure includes property acquisitions.
The Tottenham board pushed ahead with proposals for a larger stadium with a season ticket waiting list of about 22,000 but were conscious of the importance of remaining in the Haringey area.
