Eredivisie giants have just won their fourth title in a row under the Dutchman.
Tottenham Hotspur have contacted Ajax to inquire about the availability of the Eredivisie champions’ head coach Frank de Boer insists technical director Marc Overmars, despite recent claims to the contrary by the north London club, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The Dutch giants revealed earlier this week that their Premier League counterparts had been in contact of late to ascertain whether De Boer would be available to take over from the current Spurs boss Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane next season.
However, the north Londoners were the quick to deny those claims by Ajax in a statement they then released in which they said that no official contact had been made between the two parties, only for the former Arsenal wide man and now director of football in the Dutch capital, Overmars, to reveal a different side to the story.
“Spurs have informally enquired about De Boer and confirmed he’s one of their candidates,” confirmed Overmars.
All of which now places a big question mark over the future of Sherwood at the club next season, despite the fact that the ex-Spurs midfielder was only handed a permanent 18-month contract to manage the club in December.
