Spurs close on stadium with Sainsbury’s deal

TOTTENHAM’S plans to relocate to a new 56,000-seater stadium have moved a step closer after the club announced a tie-up with supermarket giant Sainsbury’s.

The deal will see Sainsbury’s become the operator of a 72,000 sq ft store – the main retail presence in the Northumberland Development Project.

Spurs have already received planning consent from Haringey council and are currently finalising funding for a project they estimate could cost as much as £450m.
