Reports are emerging this evening on the reasons behind why Tottenham Hotspur have decided to call off plans to appoint Antonio Conte as their new head coach.

The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick has revealed on Twitter that Spurs were left concerned by some of the Italian’s demands during negotiations which also saw Conte express his reluctance to work with younger players.

Alasdair Gold revealed that early discussions between both parties were very promising and now appear to have fallen through.

Tottenham have been left without a head coach since the departure of Jose Mourinho in April, just days before the club faced Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final with Ryan Mason installed as interim head coach for the remainder of the campaign.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Conte wanted to bring in more than four members of his own backroom staff with Spurs reluctant to allow this, while there was also some ground to be made up on salary expectations.
