Jurgen Klinsmann is a contender to take over from Harry Redknapp at Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Daily Mail.

Redknapp is the leading contender to replace Fabio Capello as England boss, following the Italian's resignation from the position last week.

Spurs have therefore wasted little time in drawing up a shortlist of potential new managers, with Klinsmann one of those included.

The German is very much regarded as a fans favourites at Tottenham, where he netted 30 league goals in two spells at the club between 1994-95 and 1997-98.

Klinsmann, Germany's fourth highest ever goalscorer, took his country to the 2006 World Cup semi-final on home soil before being beaten by Italy, while his spell at Bayern Munich saw him fail to survive his first season.

The 47-year-old took charge of the American national team in the summer, and has won three of his eight games whilst at the helm.

Despite his limited managerial experience, the appointment of Klinsmann would be a popular one in north London, given his previous links to the White Hart Lane outfit in the mid-90s.
