Spurs' Boleyn move vetoed

Karren Brady has confirmed that despite a report to the contrary, Tottenham Hotspur will be unable to either hire or purchase the Boleyn Ground once West Ham leave at the end of the season without the Board's permission.

Reports earlier this week suggested that Spurs could move to east London on a temporary basis whilst White Hart Lane was being redeveloped.

However Brady has reassured Hammers fans that this is unlikely to happen as a result of a clause in the club's contract with the developers who purchased the land.

A statement published this morning on whufc com read: "Following a story published online on Tuesday evening which stated Tottenham Hotspur could use the Boleyn Ground after West Ham have moved out, Vice-Chairman Karren Brady would like to confirm that, as a condition of the sale, she put a covenant on the ground which prevents any other football club from using it as their home ground or playing matches there without the express permission of West Ham United.

"Therefore, this categorically rules out any other football team, including Tottenham Hotspur, from using the ground to play football matches unless the Board of West Ham United gives them permission to do so."
