Tottenham have made a formal approach for Frank de Boer, according to Dutch sources.

The former Ajax defender, in an interview with NIS, had this to say:

"Spurs have made an approach. After the last league game I'll think about it. I'll talk & listen to what they have to say."

"I see a opportunities at Tottenham. Just as Liverpool and Newcastle, they are sleeping giants."

Speaking on his desire to join a club that mirrors his ambitions, he added: "I would like to add something to a club like Brendan Rodgers did at Liverpool."

While Sherwood's record at Tottenham casts him in a favourable light, it's widely reported that Daniel Levy will relinquish the 45-year-old of his services in the summer.

De Boer was previously touted for the Spurs managerial post in the wake of Andre Villas-Boas' dismissal but elected to stay at Ajax and guide them to a fourth consecutive Eredivisie title.

"Tottenham called my manager with the possibility after sacking [Andre] Villas-Boas but I said, 'no, right now it's not the right moment'."

Louis van Gaal was the bookies favourite to take over at White Hart Lane but now looks to have agreed terms with Manchester United. The Netherlands manager will take charge of his country for the World Cup this summer before assuming the role of Manchester United boss after the tournament.
