Netherlands head coach Louis van Gaal has admitted that the vacant position at White Hart Lane is of interest.

As speculation continues to rumble through the British press over who the next Tottenham manager might be, one man has held his hand up for consideration.

Netherlands national coach Louis van Gaal has confessed to being interested in the White Hart Lane post, but stated he would not work in a dual role.

"I've always said that I want to work in the Premier League, so there's a chance,” the Dutchman told NOS.

"But I've also read that Frank de Boer and Guus Hiddink were in the picture. Everyone who knows me knows I won't do two jobs at the same time."

Van Gaal’s comments are certainly promising for Spurs, but it may mean that the club would have to wait until after next summer’s World Cup before the experienced boss would be ready to take over at the club.

The 62-year-old has managed both the Dutch national side and Barcelona on two separate occasions, along with stints at Ajax, AZ Alkmaar and Bayern Munich.

In his distinguished career Van Gaal has won seven domestic titles, the Champions League and UEFA Cup. His total trophy haul comes to 19.
