Andre Villas-Boas is reassessing his position in talks with Tottenham. The Guardian says Villas-Boas could turn his back on Tottenham after becoming frustrated with discussions over the vacant manager's role.

The former Chelsea boss has held several days talks with the club about replacing Harry Redknapp, who ended his four-year reign in north London earlier this month.

But the fact that chairman Daniel Levy is willing to wait to speak directly with France boss Laurent Blanc has disappointed Villas-Boas.

The 34-year-old is angry there could be as many as 10 people of the shortlist, including Wigan's Roberto Martinez, Everton's David Moyes and former Schalke boss Ralf Ragnick.
