The Daily Mail claim the north London club are to pocket the fourth-highest sum of broadcasting revenue as a result of 25 of their matches being shown on Sky Sports and BT Sports.

Tottenham have earned £79.15million as a base TV fee, £29.48million for the number of their Premier League games screened and a further £34.92million if they hold on to third place in the table.

The £143million windfall is a jawdropping sum and demonstrates the immense monetary value of participation in the Premier League and proves, in alliance with the Champions League payouts, why a top-four finish is so key to the big hitters. Spurs posted a £41.2million profit in their recently-published financial results and the Premier League windfall will go a long way to contributing to another tasty set of results for the current season. Little wonder money men Daniel Levy and Joe Lewis put such store in nailing down a high league finish, and why FA Cup and League Cup results take on secondary value. With a top-three finish looking likely once again, the board of directors can budget for another major pay day. Huge credit must go to Mauricio Pochettino for building a vibrant and exciting team that broadcasters are so keen to regularly screen. Only Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have been shown on TV more often this season.
