It looks as if Spurs are on their way to Wembley, but without the distraction of a cup run.

His team haven't made it to any finals, but Tottenham Daniel Levy is closing in on securing a temporary move to the stadium for the 2017/2018 season.

Spurs are eager to find a new home for one season while their new 60,000-seater arena is being built, as White Hart Lane is being demolished in 2017.

Spurs won't share

The club have entertained speculation about a move to MK Dons' stadium:mk while quickly dismissing talk of a potential ground share with Arsenal or Chelsea.

A move to Milton Keynes would certainly have been controversial, and a year after 'winning the arch' in a competition between Chelsea and Spurs to daub Wembley in their respective colours', Spurs look close to sealing in a deal to be hosted by the famous stadium for a whole year.

Wembley devalued? 

Spurs could be playing at Wembley as early as next season, but only for their Champions League games. Work on White Hart Lane means part of the Paxton Road stand could be closed for the 2016/2017 campaign, which would reduce the capacity to just 32,000.

Tottenham are keen to make the most of the additional revenue when they rub shoulders with Europe's elite, and FA Chairman Greg Dyke has revealed the Wembley option has been discussed.

Chelsea are also keen to discuss a move to the England national ground when they redevelop Stamford Bridge, but unlike Spurs, they are yet to make concrete plans.

Many fans may have concerns that either team playing at Wembley could potentially devalue the stadium, as even holding the FA Cup semi-finals there has caused some controversy.

Wembley could be confirmed as Tottenham's new home as early as this month.
