From the Enfield Independent:
"TOTTENHAM have spoken to Milton Keynes Dons about the possibility of moving into their stadium if White Hart Lane is to be redeveloped. With the recent good form of the club seeing their worldwide fan base grow, Spurs have been considering expansion of White Hart Lane.
The stadium currently has a capacity of just over 36,000 but the plan is to increase the size to 50,000 to bring it into line with other top European sides.

However, if the expansion does go ahead, it would leave Juande Ramos' men homeless for at least two season while work at the ground takes place. Many possibilites have been viewed - and rejected - over recent months, including a potential ground share at West Ham's Upton Park.
The Football Association has ruled out Wembley as a club venue, while the new Olympic stadium has also been dismissed - after the games in 2012 it will be reduced from 80,000 to 25,000 and has been designated as an athletics only ground.

Now, with options running low, the Spurs board have made contact with the Dons about a potential ground share. Dons owner Pete Winklemen revealed in the News of the World: "If Tottenham decide to redevelop on site it seems they will need temporary accomodation and they have had a chat about using our stadium." The League One side moved into stadium:mk last year and the ground has a capacity of 22,000, enough to compensate all season ticket holders at White Hart Lane."

22K? Season ticket holders only? What the...? I am not happy.
