The Daily Mail says despite the embarrassment of last month's flirtation with Sevilla coach Juande Ramos, the Spaniard remains keen to accept a massive pay rise and move to White Hart Lane.

"He has said he's ready when we are," a Tottenham source said.

After defeat by Arsenal, officials at the club said privately that the Dutchman has until next month's international break to turn things around.

Before then they face three Premier League games - away to Bolton and Liverpool and at home to Aston Villa - considered to be the most important.

Tottenham also entertain Middlesbrough in the Carling Cup and face Anorthosis Famagusta of Cyprus in two legs of the UEFA Cup.

Failure to guide Tottenham clear of the bottom three - they dropped to 17th in the table after a fourth defeat in six games - will almost certainly see Jol sacked.
