Spurs get appeal deadline

Football News 24/7
Boris Johnstone through the office of Mayor of London has set a deadline of three weeks for Spurs to accept a £17 million package to stay in north London and drop a legal challenge over the future of the 2012 Olympic Stadium.

The deadline coincides with an October 18 hearing into the decision to award preferred bidder status on the Olympic Stadium to rival club West Ham United. The office of the Mayor of London, wants the club to build a new £400 million stadium in Northumberland Park close to Tottenham’s historic White Hart Lane home.

A spokesperson for London Mayor Boris Johnson said: “We have been working to help deliver the Northumberland Park Project for many months and all avenues have now been explored. It is vital that we get clarity from Tottenham Hotspur as soon as possible.”

If Spurs do accept the Mayor's offer, it will open up the way for Athletics to continue at the Olympic venue as West Ham have given assurances that this would be feasible when they take over the stadium as planned.
