The two partners, Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy are now the sole owners of Tottenham Hotspur. Daniel Levy has been acting as the chairman of the club since 2001, which makes him the longest serving chairman of a Premier League club. Daniel Levy and his family owns 29.6% of the shares of ENIC International while the remaining 70.4% belongs to his business partner Joe Lewis.
Daniel Levy first made an attempt to buy Tottenham Hotspur from Alan Sugar in July 1998 but failed.

Levy was then appointed to the board of Tottenham Hotspur on 20 December 2000 after ENIC initiated the purchase of a 27% stake in the club from Sugar for £22 million.
How much is Tottenham Hotspur Worth in 2021?
Tottenham Hotspur are the 10th most valuable club in the world according to a new Forbes report that estimates the worth of Europe’s biggest teams has risen on average 30% over the past two years.
The London based club are estimated to be valued at around £1.67bn, which has seen a increment of 42%, or £700m, compared to two years ago.
