Netherlands great Ruud Gullit says that Tottenham Hotspur will appoint his countryman Louis Van Gaal this summer to replace Tim Sherwood as manager.
Van Gaal has already revealed that he will step down as coach of Holland at the end of the season, with his replacement set to be Guus Hiddink.
Gullit claims that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has already met with Van Gaal, and that as far as he was concerned everything was in place.
“I know for sure the chairman of Tottenham was at Van Gaal’s house,” Gullit told the BBC.
“I think it’s a done deal, but you never know.”
Gullit, who both played for and managed Chelsea amongst a host of other major European clubs, is well placed within the Dutch camp, helping the KNVB with its bids to host the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups with Belgium.
