The Portuguese boss remains under tremendous pressure at White Heart Lane as the club have failed to push out of second gear this season, and matters were only made worse by Sunday’s game against a rampant City side.
Spurs underwent a massive transformation over the summer, spending big on the likes of Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen, all of whom have under-performed since signing on in north London.
And it is now believed that chairman Daniel Levy will encourage Villas-Boas to pursue players with more Premier League experience when the transfer window reopens in the new year in a bid to put their campaign back on track.
It is now understood that Everton’s Leighton Baines and Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye will be the club’s prime targets, though other targets will be considered as the weeks tick by until January.
