Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has hailed their “fantastic” new stadium and says it will “bring the club to the next step”.

The opening of the Spurs new stadium continues to be delayed amid reports of electrical and structural issues.

The club released a statement on Wednesday saying that their clash against Manchester United on January 13 will be hosted at Wembley stadium.

Manchester United have reportedly made an approach to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window.

“We knew at the beginning of the season we were very excited, we knew we would have a chance to play in the new stadium,” Lloris told Sky Sports.

“We don’t really know when it’s going to happen. There’s a lot of expectation from the players because it’s something fantastic for the club and will bring the club to the next step.”

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino on Thursday said that he hopes the new stadium would be ready to host their first Champions League last-16 tie in February next year.
