Tottenham expert issues naming rights claim after source's Amazon reveal
Tottenham chiefs may be “feeling the heat” after a lack of progress on securing naming right for the club’s stadium.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Tottenham’s new stadium remains without sponsorship despite it being open since April 2019.
A Spurs source told Football Insider in March that the board have made it clear in extensive discussions with potential naming rights partners they are holding out for a deal worth £25m-a-year.
However, as it stands, the stadium remains without sponsorship.
“It’s very, very quiet at the moment,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“With the attendance we’re getting in the stadium, every game seems to be about 61,000 and plus, they make a lot of money from that stadium. That’s London’s third biggest event space going on there every single day.
“Look, if they needed the money then they’re pretty quick to get any other sort of deals they want.
“They’re obviously waiting for something to come along and the chap from America, Todd Kline, has now been in the role for around 18 months.
“So I’m sure if there were pressing issues to get this done, he would be feeling the heat right now. But he seems to be allowed to continue to explore different opportunities and things like that.
“So imagine it will be one of those things where at 8AM in the morning, one day, we’ll just get the picture of the stadium and it will say ‘club update’.
“And inside there, we’ll hear the news. But that hasn’t happened as yet.
