Spurs chairman Levy won't let Sherwood return to Blackburn on cheap

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy won't allow coach Tim Sherwood to take the Blackburn Rovers job on the cheap.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy won't allow coach Tim Sherwood to take the Blackburn Rovers job on the cheap.

The Mail on Sunday says Levy handed a new long-term contract to Sherwood, a former Rovers title-winning captain, in the summer and the 43-year-old has an important role at White Hart Lane as a technical co-ordinator overseeing the club's youth programme.

He survived a cull of backroom staff at Spurs following the departure of Harry Redknapp in the summer and Levy could want as much as £3million to allow him to move to Ewood Park.
