Departing Tottenham football chief Paul Mitchell is pondering a management future.
The London Evening Standard says Mitchell quit his post in August, and is serving a notice period that, in theory, will keep him at Spurs until the end of the year.
Yet Spurs are actively looking for a director of football to replace Mitchell, with an announcement expected in the coming weeks.
That should free Mitchell finally to leave and the 35-year-old has had contact from Nottingham Forest — although he also has his eyes on becoming a boss.
Mitchell was strongly linked with the post at MK Dons last year after Karl Robinson — now at Charlton — was sacked. The job eventually went to Robbie Neilson, who left Hearts to move south.
