Tottenham Hotspur have reached another milestone in the construction of their new stadium, signing a £50m deal with engineering company M Anderson Construction.

Tottenham employed M Anderson to build their recently completed training ground in Enfield and clearly liked the work they did, handing them the massive sum to begin work on the foundations and super-structure of their new stadium.

Sky Sports report that the proposal sent to Haringey Council giving the engineering company the contract for £49,773,727 has been accepted, and the council have also given permission for the demolition of Fletcher House, a listed building on the Northumberland Park site.

These developments come as a rare positive development in Spurs’ battle to build their new ground, following news that they must go to the High Court to contest Archway Sheet Metals Ltd.’s appeal against a compulsory purchase order.

It is this legal obstacle which will now force Tottenham to spend a season playing at another ground, with Sky also reporting they are considering Upton Park and Stadium:MK as possible temporary homes for the 2017/18 campaign.
