Spurs confirm Wembley stay until March but could host Arsenal clash at new stadium

But it could be broken in with a mouth-watering North London derby against Arsenal on March 2.

Premier League clashes against Watford (January 30), Newcastle (February 2) and Leicester (February 10), and the Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund (February 13), will all take place at Wembley.

And should Spurs reach the fifth round of the FA Cup and be drawn at home on the weekend of the 16th/17th, that too will be played at the national stadium.

Chairman Daniel Levy issued a grovelling apology to fans for the latest setback.

He said: "I should like to apologise to our fans and thank you for your continued patience.

"The response from those who attended the familiarisation event was great to hear and reinforced our commitment to deliver an exceptional matchday experience for everyone.

"We shall now seek clarity in respect of building test schedules and test event dates and provide further information on these in the next two to three weeks."
