In the last few weeks Tottenham Hotspur have finally had their search for a new home boosted, with the news construction will begin soon. They had battled West Ham for use of the Olympic Stadium, but came up short, as the Hammers got the nod to use it as their home base.

Tottenham have reached an agreement with Archway sheet metal works, removing the final obstacle for the north London men to build their new 56,000 capacity stadium. The sheet metal company had been the biggest opposition to Spurs, but had decided not to appose a high court ruling forcing them to reach an agreement.
It has now emerged that Spurs have reached a private agreement with the company, and shared the news in a brief statement on the clubs official web site.
“Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, Archway Sheet Metal Works Ltd and the Josif Family (Archway) are delighted to announce that a private agreement has been reached for the purchase of Archway’s property on Paxton Road by the club.
“In order to allow Archway to relocate its business appropriately, the club will not take possession of the land until later this year.”
The final piece of the jigsaw for Spurs will now be locating a temporary home for the 2016-17 Premier League season. Wembley and Stadium MK have been mentioned, but Spurs will just be happy for now, to savour this huge victory.
