Tottenham have confirmed their deadline to make a decision on playing home games at Wembley next season has been extended until the end of April.

Spurs were due to notify the Football Association by Friday whether they would host matches at the national stadium in 2017-18, but the club requested they be given more time.

Mauricio Pochettino's side were set to base at Wembley for a season while their new £800million stadium was completed, but there are concerns around the building work being finished in time.

Tottenham will now have until April 30 to make a final call, the same date they are due to host Arsenal in what could be the last north London derby at White Hart Lane.

"We have agreed an extension until 30 April 2017 with WNSL in respect of the option to play home games at @wembleystadium next season," Tottenham said via their official Twitter account.

"This is to give ourselves greater flexibility before making the final decision on the decommissioning of White Hart Lane.

"Our intention remains to spend next season at @wembleystadium before returning to our new stadium in Tottenham for the 2018/19 season."
