Club has already spent £44m acquiring land around White Hart Lane site

Tottenham Hotspur has announced plans to build a 60,000-seat stadium on the site of its existing ground.

The north London club revealed that the mixed-use Northumberland development project would include construction of a club museum, restaurant, homes, shops and community buildings.

The stadium would be built on the existing White Hart Lane site and on land to the north of the stadium.

Tottenham revealed that it spent £4.9m in professional fees on the project and has spent £44m over the past five years in acquiring properties around White Hart Lane.

The UK club said it hopes to submit a planning application in 2009, and said the professional fees will be written off if planning permission is refused.

Daniel Levy, Tottenham Hotspur chairman, said: “I am delighted that we have now finally agreed upon a solution to the club's future stadium requirements and we must now remain focused on taking the stadium development project through the various stages of consultation and on to planning.”

Spurs drew 4-4 with north London rival Arsenal last night, scoring two goals in the final minutes to secure Harry Redknapp's fourth point since being appointed manager on Sunday.
