  • Tottenham Takeover

Tottenham Hotspur are forced to release a statement denying claims that a group backed by Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg had shown an interest in purchasing the club.

Iconiq Capital has held talks with a number of buyout firms about a possible bid for the north London club, which came second in the Premier League last season.

In 2001 Bahamas-based Joe Lewis bought Tottenham through investment vehicle ENIC, which owns 85.55 percent of the club.

San Francisco fund Iconiq Capital manages a number of different Silicon Valley billionaires, including Facebook founder Zuckerberg.

Two more US Banks quietly add support for Microsoft Wallet
Ally Bank and First Light FCU bank are the latest institutions who have quietly pushed their support behind the solution. Now, 2 more banks have added support for Microsoft Wallet, albeit silently and without any announcement.

Spurs have of course now left White Hart Lane, and are preparing for a season at Wembley while they wait for their new home to be constructed, and given their record at the stadium so far, people are slightly concerned.

The full statement reads: "The Club engaged Rothschild to secure the funding for the new stadium".

The club announced on May 31 2017 the completion of the bank debt financing for the new stadium with a consortium of banks involving Bank of America Merrill Lynch International Limited, Goldman Sachs Bank USA and HSBC Bank plc.

Having failed to suggest in the time that has passed since that he wants to sell up, it would appear as though the Tottenham ownership won't be changing hands any time soon, but it's certainly an intriguing development that could help the club continue to build and be more successful in the coming years if an agreement was to be reached.
