Tottenham are set to appoint Louis van Gaal as their new manager, and according to Dutch legend Ruud Gullit, the move is already a 'done deal'.
Former Chelsea manager and player Gullit says that van Gaal has met with Spurs and the deal is already agreed.
"I know for sure he was at Van Gaal's house, the [Spurs] chairman. I think it's a done deal, but you never know." Gullit said on BBC 5 Live.
Despite naming Tim Sherwood as manager in December, Tottenham are likely to cut short the former midfielder's 18-month deal and appoint a more experienced coach.
Van Gaal is currently in charge of the Dutch national side, and he has previously said on record that he wouldn't want to do two jobs at once.
However, the Dutchman is set to leave his post after this summer's World Cup, and a move to the Premier League could be on the cards.
However, despite David Moyes' torrid first season at United, he is set to be given time, meaning Spurs could be his more likely destination.
When questioned, the Dutchman refused to rule out a move to the Premier League.
"I've always said that I want to work in the Premier League, so there's a chance." he said.
Current manager Sherwood has seen a mixed start to his managerial career.
Should van Gaal take charge of the North London club, it would be Spurs' seventh manager in 10 years.
