Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Spurs prepare back up option if Pochettino attempts fail

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham will turn their attention to signing Frank de Boer if attempts to snap up Mauricio Pochettino as their next coach fail.

The Saints boss is one of the big favourites to land the top job at White Hart Lane following the sacking of Tim Sherwood.

De Boer has hinted strongly in the past that he’d find the Tottenham job extremely appealing.

Everton are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend.

The wide man had a decent season with Tottenham over the 2013/2014 campaign to attract the interest.

However, injury followed him over the second half of the campaign as he slipped out of ex-boss Tim Sherwood’s side.

Jan Vertonghen has hinted that he could stay at the club ahead of next season.

The Belgian defender hinted earlier this season that he could leave Spurs if they didn’t secure Champions League football.

The Metro has reported that he wants to wait until he’s heard from Tottenham’s new manager.
