Tottenham eye new boss
Tottenham have reportedly begun preliminary negotiations with Laurent Blanc regarding the vacant manager's position at White Hart Lane.
The former Manchester United defender is currently managing France at Euro 2012 but is believed to have moved to the top Tottenham's shortlist.
With Les Bleus currently top of their group and poised to make it through to the quarter-finals, any detailed negotiations are likely to take place after the tournament's conclusion in a fortnight's time.
Blanc has been in charge of the French national side for two years and prior to that managed Bordeaux, his first managerial position, winning the French title in 2009.
Everton manager David Moyes and Wigan boss Roberto Martinez were the early frontrunners to replace Harry Redknapp but interest in both is believed to have cooled.
Former Porto and Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is also believed to be in contention for the role.
