Van Gaal given permission to discuss Tottenham move

Louis Van Gaal has been given permission by the Holland FA to enter discussions over his future after he announced he will step down as the national team’s coach after the World Cup this summer, according to the Telegraph.



The 62-year-old is favourite to succeed Tim Sherwood at the White Hart Lane helm after it looks increasingly likely the former midfielder will be relieved of his duties come the end of the season.


And Van Gaal is free to negotiate with until the seventh of May, when he will gather his preliminary World Cup squad for the first time, and put all talk of his future on hold.


He is currently travelling across Europe to evaluate potential candidates for his squad and is expected to visit England within the next few weeks.


However it is thought that Spurs held talks with the Dutch man before handing an 18 month contract to rookie Sherwood, with reported concern within the club about his suitability to the position - while he could also be tempted by a bigger club if another hot seat becomes available.


However the Telegraph suggest that Mauricio Pochettino of Southampton is a serious contender for the job with it likely that he has guided the Saints to an eight place finish.


Sources close to chairman Daniel Levy have indicated that he is impressed with the style of football Pochettino plays, while his position at St Mary’s is far from concrete following the departure of former chairman Nicola Cortese, of whom he had a close working relationship.


It is also hoped that were Spurs to opt for the Argentinian he who be able to persuade reported transfer target Adam Lallana to follow him to north London, while a number of players are reported to be excited at the prospect of working under the 42-year-old.
