Tottenham and Dele Alli must wait a little longer to learn how long the midfielder will be banned for his horror tackle, according to a report.
UEFA were initially set to make a decision over the duration of the 20-year-old’s ban this week, but the Standard report that a decision will not be made until 23 March.
The delayed decision now means that Tottenham will hear of the result on the very same day a decision is made by Brent Council’s planning committee over their application to play in front of a capacity crowd at Wembley Stadium.
If the application is successful, Tottenham will be able to play all of their home matches in the 2017-18 season at Wembley in front of a full-house, instead of a restricted 51,000 for some games.
But the north London club have not yet formally announced their intention to make the temporary move from White Hart Lane, and they have until the end of March to inform the FA of their final decision.
England international Alli is likely to be handed a three-match ban for the incident, for which he has since apologised to his team-mates.
