The report that the Chargers have been discussing a move to London with the NFL is "bullshit," the Chargers' owner told reporters.

According to the rumours, the NFL franchised team have considered Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as their new home, however, both the Chargers and the NFL deny having held any discussions of the matter.

Dean Spanos, owner of the Los Angeles Chargers, has shot down reports that the NFL franchise have been discussing a relocation to the UK with the NFL.

"It's total f**king bullshit," Spanos told reporters, according to the Guardian.

Reportedly, the team's new home would be the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

"We're not going to London. We're not going anywhere," Spanos said.

"We're playing in Los Angeles. This is our home, and this is where we are planning to be for a long f**king time. Period."
