Tottenham coach Tim Sherwood wants guaranteed transfer funds to make the move to Blackburn Rovers.

The People says Tottenham coach Sherwood is still No.1 choice but the ex-Rovers skipper would need a guarantee that a sizeable transfer kitty would be made available.

Sherwood would want sidekick Les Ferdinand and Academy coach Chris Ramsey with him at Ewood Park so Rovers would have to pay Spurs compensation for losing a huge chunk of their coaching staff.
