Tottenham's proposed new stadium has become the first London ground to sign up to be a venue to host games if England win the 2018 World Cup.

Wembley, Arsenal's Emirates Stadium and the London 2012 Olympic Stadium are also expected to join Spurs's new ground before the deadline of Wednesday evening.

Spurs have submitted plans to build a new 56,000-seater stadium and hope to be in their new home for 2012.

London United, the body that has been organising which of the capital's stadiums should be part of the World Cup bid, are confident the other stadiums will also sign up before the deadline.

Arsenal and the Olympic Stadium have had some issues over FIFA's demands for all host stadia but it is understood there are close to being resolved.

London United are due to make their formal submission on venues to England 2018 chiefs on Thursday morning.
