Tottenham Hotspur 'want Frank de Boer as new manager'

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made preliminary enquiries about the availability of Ajax manager Frank de Boer.

Tottenham Hotspur have allegedly shortlisted Ajax boss Frank de Boer as a potential candidate for the vacant managerial post at the club.

Spurs director of football Franco Baldini has made preliminary enquiries to establish whether the Dutchman would be interested in the role, according to The Mirror.

De Boer's Ajax assistant Dennis Bergkamp was once a fan favourite at Spurs' bitter rivals Arsenal, but it is unknown whether he would be included in any deal that is brokered.

Tim Sherwood was appointed as caretaker manager at White Hart Lane following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas, but has expressed uncertainty about taking charge on a permanent basis.

Earlier this year, De Boer received the Rinus Michels Award for manager of the year in the Holland after leading Ajax to their third successive Eredivisie title.
