Tottenham chiefs are reconsidering their stadium development plans.

The Guardian says potential downsizing of the stadium project is being blamed on timing rather than a lack of ambition among directors. As well as the global credit crunch, there are doubts that Haringey Council will provide grant aid for a full redevelopment, and the Olympic project is also monopolising spending on transport improvements in north-east London. The price of property adjoining the current ground and development restrictions have also contributed.
