Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas will not make the final decision on whether Tim Sherwood leaves the club if Blackburn Rovers come calling. Sherwood, who captained Rovers to the Premier League title in 1995, has reportedly been targeted by the Lancashire club should current boss Steve Kean leave.

Villas-Boas said in The Sun: "It would not be up to me to say yes or no. It would be up to the club and Tim.''

Sherwood is currently the technical co-ordinator at White Hart Lane, working with the development squad.
