Villas-Boas joins Pochettino on shortlist of incoming Newcastle owners

Olympique Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas is being linked with a return to the Premier League.

The former Chelsea and Tottenham manager is under consideration at Newcastle United once their sale goes through, reports Foot Mercato.

While sacked Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is the new owners' top target, they have a shortlist of two other options.

Villas-Boas is their top alternative, with Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre also being considered.

AVB has just guided Marseille to Champions League qualification for next season.
