United States Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati has told The Sun he is confident Jurgen Klinsmann will not be joining Tottenham Hotspur.
Former Tottenham striker Klinsmann has been mentioned as a contender to replace Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane following the Portuguese's sacking on Monday.
But, after the German recently signed a contract extension with the USMNT, it seems that Klinsmann is set to remain in his current post ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
Gulati said: "We're not oblivious to the fact Jurgen's success has attracted interest from outside the US.
"Therefore there were pragmatic market considerations in offering him a new long-term contract.
"It's not specifically the Switzerland or Tottenham issues -- but the desire to have a commitment from him, contractually, for a long time is vital."
