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.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
