Glenn Hoddle is keen on returning to Tottenham for the second time as a manager, according to the BBC.
The 56-year-old took charge at White Hart Lane from 2001 to 2003 after spending the majority of his playing career at Tottenham, where he collectively won the Uefa Cup and FA Cup twice as a player, before guiding Spurs to a League Cup final as manager.
He's one of the names tipped to replace Andre Villas-Boas, who was sacked on Monday, along with former England manager, Fabio Capello and Swansea boss, Michael Laudrup in line for the job.
The former Spurs player confirmed his interest after Villas-Boas was dismissed by the Tottenham board on Monday, after a 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool which saw them drop to seventh-place in the table.
It's been over eight years since Hoddle left Wolves in 2006, which has since led to a career in punditry.
Gary Lineker, former Tottenham and England striker tweeted:
"Would love to see Glenn Hoddle given another chance at this level, has a brilliant football mind."
Although this season, the Premier League has been the death-trap for managers, with a quarter parting company following Villas-Boas' dismissal.
Martin Jol, Ian Holloway, Paulo Di Canio and Steve Clarke all lost their jobs since the start of the campaign, while in the Football League there has been even more casualties.
The League Managers Association have responded to this situation.
A statement from chief executive Richard Beven read:
"The LMA is of course deeply concerned by the recent surge in managerial dismissals.
"This is a particularly turbulent period. As it stands, 19 managers [across the top four divisions] have already lost their jobs in this campaign.
"Almost half of the managers sacked so far have been given less than one year in the job.
"The volatility in management and coaching continues to undermine the profession at a time when the game needs to continue to encourage players towards the end of their career to stay in football."
