The governing body of English soccer, the FA, is reportedly close to agreeing a deal with Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur regarding the team’s temporary relocation to Wembley Stadium.
FA chairman Greg Dyke told Sky Sports News that such a deal represented a sensible move for both parties – and that discussions on holding Tottenham’s domestic league and Champions League matches were developing.
“We’re certainly in discussions with Spurs that they should come in for a full season when they’re re-building their stadium. We’re a long way down the path with reaching an agreement.
“We’re in discussions about them playing their Champions League games there at Wembley next year but I don’t know much about that. On the full season, I think we’re quite close to a deal.”
