Tottenham have gone cold on Rino Gattuso as next manager in the last 24 hours.
BBC Sport report Gattuso is not being considered as a candidate to become the new Tottenham manager.
The Italian, 43, left the manager's role at Fiorentina on Thursday, 23 days after being appointed.
The prospect of him joining Spurs prompted a fan protest, which was communicated to the club by the Tottenham Hotspur Supporter Trust.
The club had not commented on Gattuso but it is understood they are now looking elsewhere.
On Thursday, Spurs ended talks with former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca.
Fonseca, 48, is understood to be stunned by the developments, with negotiations reportedly so far advanced that discussions had taken place about potential signings.
