'He's very clever, isn't he?' - Exclusive: Major Levy reported plan Wows ex-pro
Tottenham securing a naming rights deal worth £250million over 10 years would be “absolutely fantastic” business from chairman Daniel Levy, according to Noel Whelan.
The former Leeds United striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, has heralded the Spur chief’s leadership, particularly when it comes to the club’s new stadium.
The Daily Mail report that Levy is looking to agree a £25million-a-year deal over the next decade for the naming rights at their new home ground, with technology giants Amazon emerging as a potential candidate.
Whelan told Football Insider: “He’s a very clever businessman, isn’t he? He’s got a lot going for him with the new stadium now, we’ve already seen the figures that have come out.
“He’s looked into the future and knew that it would generate more money and it would be paid off in a certain space of time.
