Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he came close to quitting Tottenham and joining PSG in the summer, after being offered the job by club owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

The Metro reports that rumours linking the former Chelsea boss to the post at the French champions in the wake of Carlo Ancelotti's departure had some grounding.

Villas-Boas has now confirmed that he was formerly approached for the role at PSG, but declined it so that he could continue his work with Tottenham. The Portuguese coach also confessed to having a healthy relationship with Al-Khelaifi.

"I speak with the PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi on a regular basis," said Villas-Boas.

"He offered me the PSG job in the summer, but I decided that I wanted to stay another year at Tottenham in the end."

Villas-Boas' decision to stay at White Hart Lane may eventually prove to be a key one, with Spurs set to challenge for numerous honours this year after spending unprecedented amounts in the transfer window to bring in big names.

However the 35-year-old is already being linked with moves to other clubs at the end of the current season. It is rumoured that both Inter Milan and Monaco are monitoring his situation, whilst PSG are sure to return if things with Laurent Blanc don't go to plan.
