Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood says he's working towards next season.

With names such as Louis van Gaal and Frank de Boer constantly linked with his job, Sherwood maintains he is the man entrusted with getting Spurs back into the Champions League having only replaced previous incumbent Andre Villas-Boas in December.

When asked if he had spoken to chairman Daniel Levy, Sherwood replied: "There was no sit down meeting, nothing more than what I normally do. I've seen him a few times.

"I'm planning for next season. There's no point me planning if someone else is coming in. I've not asked for any assurances. I've an 18-month contract and I expect to be here a lot longer than that.

"It (the meeting) was all about pre-season, who do I want to keep. A lot of these players here are playing for their future and I think they realise that now.

"I'm going to have a good look at the squad and see who I am going to keep and who I am going to bring in.

"They have a chance between now and the end of the season to prove they want to play for a great giant of a club like Tottenham."
