With Spurs moving out of their historic home at the end of the 2016-17 campaign, their new 61,000 capacity stadium is already taking shape and will be ready for the 2018-19 season.

This season there is a reduced capacity of just under 30,000 at the Lane, with a large chunk of the stadium removed in the south east corner to allow construction work to continue.

Soon, it will all be gone.

While no deal has yet been confirmed, Spurs are expected to play their home games at Wembley Stadium next season while the rest of the original White Hart Lane is demolished to make way for the new stadium.

Take a look at the time-lapse video below to see the rapid progress in the last month.
