Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that they have registered an interest in moving to the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 games.
Despite the fact we have had our planning application for the new stadium at White Hart Lane approved by Haringey Council on Thursday night, we have still expressed our interest in moving to East London.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said in a statement: “I can also confirm we have registered an interest in the Olympic Stadium site within the deadline of September 30, in conjunction with AEG (Europe), the world’s largest entertainment and facilities management company.
“It is only prudent and good management that we ensure that we investigate all possible options for the club. We were informed by the Olympic Park Legacy Company that were we not to register an interest at this time, there would not be an opportunity at any future date.
“We have always maintained that we wouldn’t undertake any project that could undermine the overall financial stability and future success of the club and this shall remain our guiding principle going forward and in determining our best option in the interests of the club and all its fans and stakeholders.”
