Tim Sherwood: Spurs boss claims agents are telling players he is leaving

Sherwood's future at Spurs is believed to be untenable after months of reports that chairman Daniel Levy is actively seeking to replace him this summer.

Ajax boss Frank de Boer claimed last week that Levy has inquired about his services, while Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino and Everton's Roberto Martinez have also been linked with the job.

Spurs midfielder Sandro claimed this week that Sherwood would be sacked and, ahead of what could be his final game in charge against Aston Villa on Sunday, Sherwood said: "If I need any information I'm better off asking the players.

"Sandro wouldn't be the first player to ask me, although he hasn't. Someone has obviously asked him for his opinion and knowledge of what's going on, but I'm not sure the chairman has spoken to Sandro.

"The players look at a lot of speculation and it can begin to be more than that.

"I've had a lot of players come to me and say 'our agents have told us you're not going to be here next season'.

"It's a difficult situation but I've just got to get on with it. There's no a date set to meet the chairman yet. We will sit down and have a chat."

Simon Felstein, Tottenham's head of communications, said: "The situation hasn't changed. We always said Tim will sit down with the chairman and talk about his future in the summer."

Spurs are looking for a positive result against Villa as they aim to secure sixth place and a spot in next season's Europa League, with the 2015 winners gaining automatic entry into the Champions League.

"It's hugely important and a great opportunity for a club like Tottenham to progress to the Champions League via the Europa League," said Sherwood.

"We want Champions League football but we know how difficult it is to achieve. Everyone wants it and the competition is getting tougher."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
