Tottenham's new stadium will have a 58,000 capacity, with the ground designed to seat spectators close to the pitch to maximise its atmosphere.

"Having the fans up close can lift the team," said striker Robbie Keane.

The full planning application for the new ground, which will be adjacent to their current White Hart Lane stadium, is due in the next few months.

The new plans also include a 150-room hotel as well as a public square that could be used for community events.

"Too often new stadiums are surrounded by empty, dead space and we did not want that in Tottenham," said Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.


"Instead, with these new plans for the public square and public space, we have embraced the opportunity to create something truly special for local people."

The public space could be used for a temporary ice rink or street markets.

The latest plans will be revealed as part of a second public consultation, taking place from 2 to 7 April.
