Spurs-linked sporting director admits he has received Premier League offers 

Former Bayer Leverkusen sports coordinator, Tim Steidten, who is rumoured to be one of the frontrunners to replace Fabio Paratici at Tottenham, has admitted that he has received offers from the Premier League.

Tim Steidten made his name at Werder Bremen, where he went from a youth scout to head of scouting, then sporting director and director of football in the space of nine years.

He joined Bayer Leverkusen as the head of scouting in 2019 and once again demonstrated an eye for finding gems and was then promoted to the role of sports coordinator last summer.

The 44-year-old left his role BayArena back in March and it was reported by Alasdair Gold on Football.London earlier this week that he is one of three leading contenders for the sporting director role at Spurs, alongside AS Roma director Tiago Pinto and another unnamed candidate.

Steidten has now admitted that he does not expect his next job to be in the Bundesliga and revealed that he has received offers from England.

The former Leverkusen man told DeichStube: “Germany and England are definitely the two leagues that interest me the most.

“There are already offers, including from the Premier League.

“Honestly, there’s not that many clubs in the Bundesliga that appeal to me and where I am needed right now.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Steeden’s expertise seems to lie specifically in player recruitment, which would make him a good fit for Spurs, given that we now have Scott Munn in place as the chief football officer to oversee the running of the academy and other aspects of the football club.
