Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood will be replaced at the end of the season.
Sherwood took over from Andre Villas Boas in December and had signed an 18 month deal with the club, but it has now been confirmed that he will step down as they look for other options. Holland coach Louis van Gaal is rumoured to be in the frame to replace Sherwood, though the Tottenham board are also considering a move for Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Sherwood is set to be offered a coaching role under the new manager, but it is unclear whether or not he’ll accept this offer. Van Gaal looks like the most likely candidate as the Dutchman is set to step down from his international role after the World Cup this year. The 62 year old leads Daniel Levy’s list of names and has made his desire to work in England no secret.
The news comes just hours before Tottenham’s home Premier League clash with Gus Poyet’s Sunderland on Monday night.
