Tottenham Hotspur “Not for Sale”
North London Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has said that it is not in any discussions relating to a takeover offer.
Media reports had said US firm Iconiq Capital was preparing an offer.
Spurs are currently in the process of building a new stadium, and will play games at Wembley Stadium next season.
The club said in a statement: “The board believes this [stadium financing agreement] was the optimum solution in the interests of fans, employees and shareholders and for the continued development of the club.”
But it added: “The board is not in any discussions relating to a takeover offer for the club.”
The new stadium is expected to cost £750m but will create about 3,500 jobs in the area when it is finished, according to the club.
