A select round-up of news relating to Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur face Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon in what is likely to be Tim Sherwood’s last match in charge.

In quotes that have been widely published in the last few hours, including in the London Evening Standard, the Spurs boss said he was “Not confident” that he would be in charge of a football club next season.

“I think I’ve handled it alright to be honest,” Sherwood added, of his tenure at White Hart Lane. But he would no doubt like to go out on a win when his side face the Villans.

In early team news for that game, the BBC reports that Tottenham are Etienne Capoue is available for selection but that Jan Vertonghen is out of the game.

Younes Kaboul is suspended for the match, while the quintet of Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli, Andros Townsend, Mousa Dembele and Kyle Walker are all side-lined through injury.

Speaking of Walker, the Telegraph reports that the Spurs and England right-back faces an anxious wait in the build-up to this summer’s World Cup.

Walker has been assessed by England’s doctors due to his ongoing pelvic injury, and he must now wait to see if he remains in Roy Hodgson’s plans for the upcoming tournament.
