Tottenham's move into their new White Hart Lane stadium has been further delayed until March at the earliest.
Club chairman Daniel Levy is apparently hoping to finally open the new ground in March.
The latest in a long line of delays means the last-16 tie against Borussia Dortmund on February 13 will be staged at Wembley, but Uefa have not ruled out Tottenham playing later rounds in the new stadium if they progress.
In a statement released by the club Levy admitted: "I should like to apologise to our fans and thank you for your continued patience [in light of the extra delays]".
If they reach the FA Cup fifth round and are drawn at home, they will also play that game at Wembley on February 16/17. The response from those who attended the familiarisation event [on 15 December] was great to hear and reinforced our commitment to deliver an exceptional match-day experience for everyone.
All of which leaves the home league game against Palace on 16 March as the best-case scenario, although that would clash with a possible FA Cup quarter-final.
Tottenham will refund supporters who have bought tickets for the three moved Premier League matches, with the Wembley capacity for those games capped at 51,000.
"We are now liaising with the contractors and building control at Haringey Council to determine a schedule of commissioning, building test dates and building control sign-offs, along with formal test event dates". All three matches will be Category C pricing from the 2017/18 season.
The club have used the national stadium in North West London as a makeshift home since the start of last season and on Tuesday morning they confirmed another tranche of fixtures there.
TOTTENHAM will continue to play at Wembley until at least the end of February following the announcement of a further delay to their new stadium.
