Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Erik Ten Hag’s name can be struck off the list of contenders to become the next Tottenham boss.

Ten Hag was linked heavily with the Spurs job in the days immediately after Jose Mourinho’s sacking but the speculation decreased when the Dutchman penned a contract extension with Ajax.

According to Alasdair Gold, despite the 51-year-old’s decision to sign an extension, he remains a potential backup option for Spurs if they cannot bring Mauricio Pochettino back to the club.

However, Romano has now said in an interview on Chris Cowlin’s YouTube Channel that a move for Ten Hag can be ruled out.

He revealed that Spurs spoke to the Ajax boss before he signed a contract extension but the club were not “100 per cent convinced” by him.

Romano also confirmed that recently departed Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is not an option Tottenham are considering for the job at this moment in time.
