Levy looking to raise £400m in naming rights, Times say

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy hopes to raise £400m towards the club’s new stadium through naming rights, according to The Times.

The newspaper reports that whereas Chelsea are keen to retain the name Stamford Bridge when their stadium is redeveloped, Spurs’ new-look home will no longer be called White Hart Lane.

The Times say Levy is seeking a naming-rights partner and is ready to abandon the ground’s current name.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror reports that former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp believes Dele Alli is worth more than the £100m Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba.

It comes amid continued speculation over Alli’s long-term future despite the Spurs star making it clear he wants to stay at the Lane.

Redknapp said: “Can you tell me how all those scouts failed to spot him when he was playing for MK Dons every week? How did they end up waiting until Tottenham came in for him?

“I think he’s worth £100m now – if Pogba’s worth £90m, Alli is worth more.

“He’s just 20 years of age, for heaven’s sake, and the kid’s got everything.

“He scores goals, makes goals, he can dribble, head it, he’s got an edge to him and puts his foot in. I think he’s fantastic.”
