Andre Villas-Boas is understood to have arrived in England ahead of signing a deal to take over as manager of Tottenham.

The 34-year-old was sacked as Chelsea boss just four months ago but he now appears set to take charge at White Hart Lane.

Reports in Portugal and England suggest that Villas-Boas has now agreed terms on a three-year deal.

Sky Sports understands Spurs should confirm his appointment today, after he flew into London on Monday evening.

Portuguese sources suggest Villas-Boas will not be presented to the media until next week when Spurs' first-team squad return for pre-season training.
