The former England man, who spent 14 years at the North London club as player and manager, has seen his odds drop from 66/1 to as low as 7/2 with some bookmakers amid growing speculation that Villas-Boas could be axed after an indifferent start to the season which led to a woeful 6-0 thrashing at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is currently the favourite to replace the under-fire Portuguese manager while another former Spurs favourite Jurgen Klinsmann is 14/1.

The 56 year old’s last managerial post came at Wolves but his time there came to an end in July 2006 so it has been a fair while since Hoddle was last involved at such a high level, having spent time forming his football academy in Spain.

As a player Hoddle helped Tottenham to two FA Cup triumphs and a UEFA Cup success and as a manager secured a Worthington Cup success in an otherwise poor spell in charge.
