Louis van Gaal: Tipped to take over at Spurs

Ruud Gullit has claimed Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has struck a deal with Holland coach Louis van Gaal to take over as manager at White Hart Lane.

Tim Sherwood was handed an 18-month contract in December last year following Andre Villa-Boas' departure.

However, Gullit has suggested it is a "done deal" for Van Gaal to take over when he leaves his current post after this summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.

The former Chelsea and Newcastle manager told BBC Radio Five: "I know for sure he was at Van Gaal's house, the chairman. I think it's a done deal, but you never know."

Sherwood took over from Villas-Boas as caretaker after a 5-0 home defeat by Liverpool and steered Spurs to victory in three of their next four Barclays Premier League games.

However, last Sunday's 3-2 win over Southampton, in which they trailed 2-0 at one point, was their first in five in all competitions and just the 10th in the 21 games of his reign to date.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
