The wait for Tottenham’s new stadium to be completed seems only a matter of weeks away now as new pictures emerged on Tuesday showing the final touches being added.
Construction workers and cranes can still be seen on site as they rush to finish the £1billion project before the club’s December 15 target.
Work is still taking place on the outside of the stadium, but the completion finally seems to be edging ever closer, which will come as welcome news for fans, who have waited patiently for the opening date.

But the wait for Tottenham’s New White Hart Lane appears to be only a matter of weeks away now
The stadium was due to be completed in the summer but got behind schedule after being beset by delays and construction problems.
However, the exterior of the Premier League club’s new ground looks match-ready with the club due to confirm the grand opening soon.
The iconic cockerel now sits proudly in the middle of the club’s new home as they put the finishing touches on the impressive frontage.
The new pictures show the outside of the ground is almost there with the last of the panels put into place and all the glass now fitted.
They also show the outside of Tottenham’s new club shop – the largest in Europe – which opened back in October so fans could finally get a sneak peak of the new White Hart Lane.
The finishing touches are now being added with the club hopeful of having it finished before Christmas

The club have reportedly earmarked the visit of Burnley on December 15 as the potential first game in their new home
The store, which measures at 23,000 square feet, comes under the branding of the ‘Tottenham Experience’ and will allow fans to buy not only Spurs merchandise, but NFL goodies too.
Tottenham’s state-of the art pitch – shipped in from Holland – and goalposts have also already been put in place and the club are adamant their new 62,062-seat arena will be done before Christmas.
It has been reported that Tottenham have tentatively earmarked the visit of Burnley later this month as a potential curtain raiser, though nothing has yet been confirmed.
If there are any further delays, then the stadium would have to be unwrapped to the public on Boxing Day, when they host Bournemouth.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will hope that is not the case with the club already having to extend their stadium loan to £500m to cover the rising costs of the delayed construction.
The club also announced last week that they will be running a ballot of their season ticket holders in order to give 6,000 lucky fans a first look at their new stadium.
