Tottenham Hotspur’s search for a new head coach looks to be close to an end, according to The Telegraph.
Spurs have been seeking a replacement for Jose Mourinho for in excess of 50 days and have been linked with numerous names including Antonio Conte, Erik ten Hag, Roberto Martinez and even a return for Mauricio Pochettino.
The report claims that Paulo Fonseca has moved a step closer to taking over in North London after agreeing a contract in principle until the summer of 2023, with the option of a further twelve months.
The deal is being finalised before the club formally announce the appointment of former Juventus man Fabio Paratici, who is set to take over in a sporting director role.
Fonseca left AS Roma at the end of last season and was replaced at the Serie A giants by Mourinho.
Paratici has been heading up the search for a new manager in recent days and is now awaiting for Daniel Levy, who is currently in the Bahamas with ENIC owner Joe Lewis to rubber stamp the deal
