Andre Villas-Boas is due to be appointed the new Tottenham Hotspur manager by Tuesday.
Villas-Boas was holding talks with the club on Monday as to whether he would sign a three-year or four-year contract, and an official announcement was due to follow.
An ESPN source confirmed on Monday: "Discussions are taking place today and, once they are concluded, expect the club to make an announcement. Andre Villas-Boas is the man the club are planning to appoint"
Spurs had also considered Laurent Blanc and Ralf Rangnick, while David Moyes had been a serious contender before chairman Daniel Levy cooled his interest.
