Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly poised to take over at White Hart Lane and is the hot favourite at 1/7 in the betting with Paddy Power.
The 34-year-old had a nightmare spell at London rivals Chelsea, only lasting eight months in charge before getting the boot. But Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has supposedly been impressed by AVB’s visions for the club and youthful enthusiasm.
It seems as though Villas-Boas is practically a done deal with the West London side after he turned down the head coach position at Brazilian club Sao Paulo this week, but stranger things have happened. You only have to look at Harry Redknapp’s odds to become England manager to see how things can change.
Spurs look to have beaten Liverpool in the race for Gylfi Sigurdsson’s signature but the club are bracing themselves as top stars like Luka Modric and Rafael Van Der Vaart have hinted at leaving.
Due to contract restrictions after his departure from Chelsea, Andre Villas-Boas would not be allowed to sign for another English club until after July 1st.
Don’t be surprised if we see him unveiled as the new Tottenham boss early next week.
