Tottenham are willing to go with caretaker manager Tim Sherwood through to the end of the season.

The Mail on Sunday says Sherwood, the club's technical co-ordinator, will be given his chance until the end of the season because he knows the club and players well and, crucially, he is well liked by chairman Daniel Levy.

Though sources at the north London club maintain they have been contacted by several high-profile managers to succeed Andre Villas-Boas - axed after recent defeats to Manchester City (6-0) and Liverpool (5-0) - they say that they have not pursued anyone actively.
