Tottenham speak to Villas-Boas over Redknapp vacancy

Tottenham Hotspur have contacted former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas as the club moves to appoint a successor to Harry Redknapp, the BBC has reported.

Representatives of both parties have been in early discussions as Spurs assess Villas-Boas’ interest in the post. If the 34-year-old is keen on a return to the Premier League with Tottenham then an interview could take place as soon this week, with the BBC adding that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will return to London and oversee the recruitment process himself.

Villas-Boas was in charge for 40 matches at Stamford Bridge, winning 20 of them, and drawing and losing 10 each. When the Portuguese was sacked in March after a 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion Chelsea were fifth in the table, a place higher than their final position, but were also standing on the precipice of Champions League elimination after a 3-1 away defeat to Napoli. Under Villas-Boas’ former assistant, Roberto Di Matteo, Chelsea famously went on to win the Champions League.
