AVB to Spurs


Recommended Posts

Andre-Villas Boas has been confirmed as Tottenham's new head coach. His appointment marks a return to the Premier League just 16 weeks after his departure from Chelsea, where he was sacked eight months into a three-year contract.

[size=2][size=1][size=4]Villas-Boas will be hoping to rebuild his reputation at Spurs after succeeding Harry Redknapp, who left the post last month after four years at the helm.[/size][/size][/size]

[size=2][size=1][size=4]A post on the club's official Twitter account read: "The club is delighted to announce Andre Villas-Boas as head coach."[/size][/size][/size]

[size=2][size=1][size=4]It all caps a remarkable turnaround for the 34-year-old Portuguese who is highly regarded by [url=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/tottenham-hotspur/]Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and will be tasked with eventually creating a younger team, as well as qualify for the Champions League.[/size][/size][/size]

[size=2][size=1][size=4]The club are also hoping to announce two key signings. An £8 million deal has been agreed with Hoffenheim for midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, while the transfer of defender Jan Vertonghen for £9.5 million should also go throughv - once the Belgium international has settled a dispute with Ajax over the percentage of the fee he is due.[/size][/size][/size]

[size=1][size=4]Spurs are also hoping to sign the exciting Brazil playmaker Oscar, who already has five full international caps, from his club Internacional but face competition from several of Europe’s leading clubs.[/size][/size]

[size=1][size=4]The biggest question of all for Spurs, though, is whether they can hang on to Luka Modric, who appears set to hand in a transfer request.[/size][/size]

[size=1][size=4]Levy values the midfielder at £50 million, and will sell, but only to an overseas club.[/size][/size]

[size=1][size=4]Real Madrid have cooled their interest and the only recent inquiry Spurs have received is from Chelsea, who failed with three bids last summer, including one of £40 million.[/size][/size]
