Should Tottenham use the stadium they may be forced to change their name and the bookies make it 16/1 that they play at the ground as ‘Stratford Hotspur’.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “It looks like Spurs are in pole position for Stratford. Any fans that object to a name change can have a bet with us to soften the blow should it happen.”
