Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed plans to add a technical director to the backroom staff.

Spurs recently moved into a new £45million training ground and Villas-Boas, having already changed playing staff, is on the verge of adding a senior figure to his backroom team.

All change: Andre Villas-Boas worked with a technical director at Academica and Porto and is keen to apply the same strategy at Spurs where the whole modus operandi has changed in weeks.

He said: "The structures that surround the club are dependent on the chairman but I'd certainly promote. There are ongoing discussions."
