Tottenham set to confirm AVB as new manager

Andre Villas-Boas is understood to have arrived in England ahead of signing a deal to take over as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.

The 34-year-old was sacked as manager of Chelsea just four months ago but he is now set to take charge at White Hart Lane.

Reports in Portugal and England suggest that Villas-Boas has now agreed terms on a three-year deal.

Portuguese sources suggest that Villas-Boas would not be presented to the media until next week when Tottenham’s first-team squad return for pre-season training.
