Town Set to Play Friendly at Tottenham
Tuesday, 11th Aug 2020 17:35
Town are set to play Premier League Tottenham Hotspur in a behind-closed-doors friendly at their new stadium on Saturday 22nd August (KO 3pm), it has emerged.
The fixture has not yet been confirmed by either club but Spurs erroneously released details of the proposed fixture online.
The game will be the first time the Blues have played at Tottenham's new ground, which the North Londoners moved into last year.
Town are yet to confirm any of their four or five pre-season friendlies but were known to be in the process of lining-up games against two Premier League sides.
The Blues are hoping to play the first of their pre-season fixtures against so far unnamed opposition on Saturday.
Elsewhere, former Town loanee Bilel Mohsni has joined Grimsby Town on a one-year deal.
"He is my leader, he's my Virgil van Dijk", Mariners boss Ian Holloway told his club's official site.
The 33-year-old former Tunisia international made five sub appearances for the Blues between October and December 2012 in a loan spell from Southend. He later played for Rangers and Dundee United in Scotland and last season was with Panachaiki in Greece.

We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
