Daniel Levy is apparently strongly opposed to the idea of selling Tottenham’s current home ground Wembley to Shad Khan.

The owner of Fulham FC and the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team is looking to buy the national stadium for £600m.

It is seen as a possible new home for a London NFL franchise.

Tottenham have also turned to NFL when it comes to their new stadium, as they have laid a second pitch under their own turf to accommodate the American sport.

Spurs’ pitch can be slid away on three retractable trays, revealing the NFL pitch, which they hope to use to generate further revenue in the future.

It will host at least two NFL games per season under a 10-year deal.

However, Shad Khan buying Wembley could put a spanner in the works, as it would open up a second and bigger home for London NFL games.

Despite this, Daniel Levy has claimed that Khan buying Wembley will not affect Tottenham’s ability to hold NFL matches.

TheGlobeandMail claim minutes from a recent supporter’s trust meeting show Levy saying he was “against the sale of Wembley regardless.”
