Record profits for Spurs

Published Add your comment

Tottenham registered record pre-tax profits of £33.4million in the year ending June 30, 2009.

The figure was up from £3million on the same period last year, and was built on profits from player sales of £56.5million, with the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane leaving the club in that time, although the latter re-signed in January.

"We have made significant progress in delivering on our long-term vision for the club," chairman Daniel Levy said in a statement on

"We have always had three key priorities and you will have heard them oft repeated - investment in the first team, a new training centre and an increased capacity state-of the-art new stadium.

"We have assembled what we believe to be one of the most talented squads we have had during our time in the Premier League, the ground is being turned and pitches laid for the new training centre at Bulls Cross in Enfield and we have submitted a planning application for a stunning new stadium on a site next to our existing stadium."
