Spurs will name Villas-Boas as new manager today

Andre Villas-Boas is understood to have arrived in England ahead of signing a deal to take over as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

Four months after being sacked by Chelsea, the 34-year old Portuguese coach will bid to revive his career across London at White Hart Lane.

Reports in Portugal and England suggest that Villas-Boas has now agreed terms on a three-year deal.

According to Sky Sports, Spurs should confirm his appointment today, after he flew into London last night.

Portuguese sources suggest that Villas-Boas would not be presented to the media until next week when Tottenham’s first-team squad return for pre-season training.

Villas-Boas has replaced Harry Redknapp at the helm as he bids to establish the club among England’s elite. Redknapp was booted out last month after falling out with chairman Daniel Levy.

The Portuguese coach will also bring trusted aides Jose Mario Rocha and Daniel Sousa with him to White Hart Lane if he signs the deal today.

He already has fresh players in mind, with £8million Gylfi Sigurdsson expected to choose Spurs above Liverpool.

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen is a long-term target, while Villas-Boas is also keen on Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge and Brazilian midfielder Oscar.
