Ajax coach Frank de Boer says Tottenham have made contact with his Dutch club.

De Boer is a top target for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy as he seeks a replacement for Tim Sherwood.

"Spurs haven't had contact with my agent yet. They have approached Ajax, but that's it," he said.

"Spurs have let Ajax know they would eventually talk to me when the season's finished.

"After the last league game (against NEC on Saturday) I'll think about it."
