Tottenham will discover on Thursday whether their proposal to host 27 matches at Wembley Stadium next season has been approved.

Brent Council's planning committee are to discuss the application as Spurs hope to take one step closer to confirming their switch for the 2017/18 campaign.

Tottenham have until March 31 to activate the option to play at Wembley although it is understood their decision will not depend solely on Brent Council's verdict.

Building work continues on the club's new £800m stadium next to White Hart Lane and the key consideration is whether the project can be completed on time.

Spurs could yet stay at their current ground next season and play home games at Wembley in 2018/19, before moving into the new stadium for the 2019/20 campaign.

Brent Council's approval of 27 matches at the full capacity of 90,000 is also considered essential given Tottenham are desperate to avoid hosting games in a part-full Wembley, with the negative effects that would have on the atmosphere.
