Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Terms have been agreed for the transfer of Mbulelo Mabizela to Spurs and the South African international captain now awaits the outcome of his work permit application.

Agreement has been reached with Orlando Pirates and the defender, who returned with the squad from the recent tour of his homeland. OldJohn, as he likes to be called, featured in the pre-season encounters against Luton Town and Sporting Lisbon.

Glenn Hoddle said of the 22-year-old on Sunday: "He did himself a lot of good. For a young boy to come over here and just pick the reins up as he has is not easy, but he's done it with some aplomb."
