Report explains when Spurs want to hire their new sporting director by

Football Insider have reported that Daniel Levy intends to hire his next director of football before choosing a new manager at Tottenham

It is said that Spurs want to hire their Fabio Paratici replacement before the end of the season, and Levy already has a shortlist of potential candidates for the North London job.

There is a hurry to get the new director in because Levy wants them to contribute to the search for Tottenham’s new manager, following the sacking of Antonio Conte earlier this season.

Football Insider claim that Spurs have held talks with Lee Dykes, the current Brentford technical director, but discussions have stalled and the Lilywhites are now looking elsewhere.

Tottenham are also looking at Johannes Spors who works in the recruitment world for Genoa, Standard Liege, Red Star FC, Vasco da Gama and Melbourne.

However, if Spurs go for Spors, they will expect him to commit 100 per cent to them and only them.

Spurs Web Opinion:

It’s all a mess really. Spurs can’t make too much progress in any manager talks because Levy clearly wants a director in first. Tottenham often struggle to get deals done quickly, so having two important deals to make plus transfers feels like a disaster waiting to happen.
