Tottenham to Replace Sherwood at End of Season, Sky Sports Says

April 7 (Bloomberg) -- Premier League soccer team Tottenham Hotspur will replace coach Tim Sherwood at the end of this season, Sky Sports reported without identifying its sources.

Sherwood, 45, took the job in December on an 18-month contract, succeeding the dismissed Andre Villas-Boas. He’d previously been technical coordinator at the club.

The north London team is seventh in the league, the same placing as when Sherwood assumed the post, and is eight points adrift of the top-four Champions League qualification positions. Tottenham hosts Sunderland tonight after losing three of the past four league games.

Netherlands national team coach Louis van Gaal is the favorite to take over the job, Sky said.

Tottenham declined to comment on the report.
