Franco Baldini has offered his resignation to Tottenham.

The Sunday Telegraph says Baldini, Tottenham Hotspur's technical director, offered to resign on the same day that Andre Villas-Boas was sacked as the club's head coach.

The offer was immediately rejected by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who has tasked Baldini with hiring Villas-Boas's replacement from a shortlist of candidates the Italian was asked to draw up this month.

Baldini's offer to resign comes just six months after the former England general manager was appointed as technical director, on Villas-Boas's initial recommendation, and given the job of overseeing Spurs' transfer business.
