Ex-Chelsea, Tottenham boss Villas-Boas wanted by Sheffield Wednesday

Former Tottenham and Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is being linked with the Sheffield Wednesday job.

The Sun says ambitious Owls are keen to tempt the ex-Chelsea and Tottenham boss after giving Carlos Carvalhal the boot.

AVB quit his job managing mega-rich Shanghai SIPG in China to fulfil a dream of racing in the long distance car race.

Villas-Boas, 40, starts the adventure in Peru next weekend and will be racing until January 20 if he makes it to the finishing line.

Owls owner Dejphon Chansiri is willing to wait as he has Villas-Boas high on his hitlist of man­agerial targets.

But Wednesday chiefs will have to offer a lucrative package to land the Portuguese boss, who has chased hefty contracts since leaving Stamford Bridge.
