Ajax Head Coach Frank De Boer is at the top of Tottenham Hotspur’s managerial shortlist to replace Andre Villas Boas, and they have approached him, according to The Mirror.
The Dutchman is said to be the ideal candidate for Director of Football Franco Baldini philosophy of developing young players and playing stylish football, as well as having a very successful career as both a player and a manager.
There are still questions over whether De Boer’s assistant Dennis Bergkamp, a legend for bitter North London rivals Arsenal, could be part of the plans and should he have any interest.
Chairman Daniel Levy is said to be willing to give temporary man in charge Tim Sherwood a crack at the job, but following Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup defeat to West Ham, it could prove to be a risky move and a more experienced man could be needed, with De Boer the ideal man.
In other Spurs news, The Daily Mail are suggesting that former boss AVB did not want to sign at least four of their summer recruits, including Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Vlad Chiriches, deals totaling around 56 million.
AVB reportedly asked for Hulk, David Villa and Joao Moutinho to prepare for life without Gareth Bale.
