Villas-Boas joins Spurs' new signings

Jason Burt

Andre Villas-Boas flew into London yesterday to sign a three-year deal to become the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur. An announcement by the club is expected today.

Just four months after he was sacked by Chelsea, Villas-Boas has agreed a deal to succeed Harry Redknapp who was dismissed last month.

The club are also hoping to announce two key signings.

An £8million deal has been agreed with Hoffenheim for the attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, while the transfer of defender Jan Vertonghen for £9.5million should also go through once the Belgium international has settled a dispute with Ajax over the percentage of the fee he is due.
