Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wants to bring former England team manager Franco Baldini back to London.

The Mirror says Spurs are still ­looking at appointing a head of recruitment to work alongside ­manager Andre Villas-Boas and Baldini remains the ­outstanding candidate.

Sources in Italy claim that Baldini, who is ­general manager at Roma, may now be open to an approach from ­Tottenham, after opting to stay in Italy last year.

Baldini already has a good relationship with Villas-Boas and wanted to take the Portuguese to Roma before he was ­appointed Chelsea ­manager.

Tottenham’s desire to appoint a head of ­recruitment is no ­reflection on the work of Villas-Boas and has long been chairman Daniel Levy’s plan.
