Ajax coach Ten Hag on shortlist at Tottenham

Ajax coach Erik ten Hag is being linked with the vacant manager's job at Tottenham.

Spurs are seeking a new manager after Monday's dismissal of Jose Mourinho and Ten Hag has been mentioned amongst the candidates under consideration for chairman Daniel Levy.

Football.London says Ten Hag is being discussed, though isn't a top choice.

Spurs chiefs have also drawn up the qualities they want from their next manager. He must be 'progressive and offensive', must have a 'preference for football from possession of the ball' and above all must 'fit within the club culture'.

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino, from his time with the club, between 2014 and 2019, serves as a blueprint for this.
