The Titans, Eagles and Seahawks can now be crossed off that list and the Jaguars have agreed to play a home game in England every year through at least 2020.

The Seahawks, Eagles and Titans will all be making their London debuts in October.

Tottenham, the Premier League runner-up last season, is building a new 60,000-plus capacity venue on the site of the White Hart Lane stadium that was recently demolished.

The final date has yet to be determined, but the game will take place either Week 7 or 8 on October 21 or October 28.

The third game that was announced will be between the Tennessee Titans and one of the teams they barely edged out for a wild-card spot, the Los Angeles Chargers.

While Tottenham is sure that building work is on schedule on the White Hart Lane site where its previous stadium was demolished past year, the National Football League has contingency plans to move the October 14 game to Wembley Stadium.

"We continue to be very excited by the growth of the NFL in the UK", NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a release.

The organisation's CEO Shane Carey welcomed the visit saying: "We're having the spotlight shone on us from all the world's media". The pair arrived in the January cold with Meghan wrapped up in a grey woollen coat from Smythe and a Jigsaw scarf.

This season also saw four games played in London - two at Wembley and two at Twickenham.

Is a London franchise any closer?

'I'm delighted Tottenham Hotspur's fantastic new stadium is joining the line-up of world-class sports arenas in our great city. "Once again, London has shown why it is the sporting capital of the world and open to the very best sports events". This will be the first regular season game for the franchise at an overseas stadium.

Mark Waller, NFL executive vice-president of events and global, says it might work.

The NFL announced the game will be played at London's Wembley Stadium on either October 21 or October 28. We are able to contemplate something as audacious as having a team in London. Tottenham Hotspur and the league will split gate receipts and food, drink and merchandise sales from NFL games there. It will also have customized features such as locker rooms, medical and media facilities and a dedicated entrance.

The club have secured a 10-year deal with the NFL to stage two games a season in their yet-to-be-named state-of-the-art new home, which is being custom-built for both the round-ball game and American football.
