De Boer odds-on to take Spurs job
Frank de Boer is now the odds-on favourite to be the next permanent manager of Tottenham Hotspur after it was confirmed that Spurs have contacted his current club, Ajax, about securing his services.
The Dutchman has enjoyed plenty of success in Amsterdam, winning four consecutive Eredivisie titles since he took over in 2010; becoming the first manager to achieve the feat. Other clubs, including Liverpool, have enquired about his services in the past but it is Spurs who now look to be in pole position to bring him in.
Bet365 are offering the best price of just 8/11 that De Boer will be the next man in charge at White Hart Lane.
Current manager Tim Sherwood still has another year to run on his contract but, after a turbulent spell in charge, he is expected to be relieved of his duties in the summer. Other candidates to replace the former England midfielder include Mauricio Pochettino (5/1 with Sky Bet) and David Moyes (8/1 with Bet365).
