TIM SHERWOOD HAS been appointed head coach of Tottenham with a contract to the end of the 2014-2015 season, the Premier League club has announced.

Sherwood had been named as interim coach after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked earlier in December following a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

The 44-year-old Sherwood had overseen a 3-2 over Southampton on Sunday.

“We were extremely reluctant to make a change mid-season, but felt we had to do so in the club’s best interests,” said Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

We have a great squad and we owe them a head coach who will bring out the best in them and allow them to flourish and enjoy a strong, exciting finish to the season.

“We are in the fortunate position of having within our club a talented coach in Tim Sherwood.

“We believe Tim has both the knowledge and the drive to take the squad forward.”
