Report: Key discussions on standby as Tottenham handed crucial deadline over major development

Tottenham have been handed the crucial deadline of early March to announce whether they will have to make contingency plans over the completion of their new stadium, according to a report.
The London Evening Standard claim on their website that Spurs are pushing it tight to finish their brand new 62,000 seat home venue, and that there is the possibility of being forced to rearrange fixtures, as West Ham did this season, to finish the project.
It is said that the Premier League will be asking for confirmation over whether such a scenario will have be arranged at the beginning of next month, with the new top flight season set to kick off on August 11.
Tottenham are reportedly still confident that the stadium will be ready by that date, although the tight schedule means that any setbacks could impact them ahead of the upcoming campaign.
The report also states that although there have been no formal discussions between Spurs and the Football Association over playing more games at their temporary home of Wembley next season, the talks are on standby in case it is a necessity.
Tottenham have taken residence at the national stadium for the current campaign, having played their European matches there last season, having left their former ground White Hart Lane at the end of the 2016/17 season.
In other Tottenham news, Mauricio Pochettino has made an ‘unbelievable’ claim over one of the club’s stand out stars.
