Stadium Update From BBC Commentator – Club Certain To Play At Wembley Next Season After Completing £15 Move

The fate of Tottenham’s home stadium for next season could be coming to an end soon according to BBC journalist Guy Mowbray.

The journalist claims that Tottenham are almost certain of playing next season’s home games at Wembley and that would feature in a deal reportedly worth £15 million.

“Spurs are almost certain to be playing all their home games here next season,” said Mowbray, while on commentary duty during the 4-2 FA Cup semi-final loss at the hands of Chelsea. (H/t football Insider)

Club officials hadn’t taken a decision on making Wembley their home for next season and in fact had struck a deal to extend the original deadline until 30th April to make their choice.

Daniel levy had even stated recently that he wants to be certain that the construction of Tottenham’s new stadium is on-track before committing to moving to Wembley.

Adding to the comments from Mowbray, Squawka claims that the Premier League side would have to stump up £15million to play games in the 2017-18 season while their new stadium is being developed. Moving away from the Lane would be a tough decision to take by Tottenham but a new stadium is a requirement as the club look to add and create a better match day experience for both fans and players.

However, Wembley hasn’t been a happy stadium for the team this season as they struggled to get going in the Champions League and Europa League, which led to their early elimination from both competitions.

Even playing in the FA Cup semi against Chelsea didn’t go as planned, despite Harry Kane and Dele Alli pegging the Blues back to ensure the score was tied at 2-2.

Moving to the large stadium for a complete season might end up costing Spurs a lot and they will have to be smarter in the way they manage games on a pitch that is slightly larger than the one at the Lane.

We will have to wait and see how the deal goes but for now, it seems highly likely that Kane and the boys will be playing at Wembley next season.
