Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says Tim Sherwood to have inherited Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham squad.

Spurs spent over £110million last summer. But it wasn't enough to keep AVB in a job.

And Pardew feels that Sherwood has inherited a good squad at White Hart Lane.

He said: "He's got a good squad.

"He is very fortunate to get that position in terms of the players he's got, it's a fantastic team.

"But he is still doing a good job nevertheless and it will be a tough ask for us."
