Gazetta dello Sport claim that Tottenham have agreed a three year deal with Andre Villas-Boas to take over from Harry Redknapp as White Hart Lane boss. The young Portuguese manager was sacked by Chelsea after barely nine months in charge of the Stamford Bridge side.

White Hart Lane chairman Daniel Levy opted to sack Redknapp after he failed to secure a Champions League berth for the coming season, despite the fact he did manage to achieve a top four finish.

The 65 year old former West Ham manager was seen as a likely replacement for Fabio Capello as England national team coach but that post went to Roy Hodgson but the uncertainty over Redknapp’s future was seen as a motivating factor in the North London side’s drop in form in the final months of last season.

Villas-Boas had been strongly linked with a move to take over from Kenny Dalglish as Liverpool boss before that post was taken by Swansea City’s Brendan Rodgers.

Prior to taking over a Blues boss Villas-Boas guided FC Porto to a domestic double and a Europa League triumph.
