Report: Ramos Agrees to Tottenham Move

Sevilla coach Juande Ramos is once again being linked with the top job at Tottenham Hotspur, which was made vacant on Thursday after the club fired manager Martin Jol and his coaching staff following a 2-1 UEFA Cup defeat by Getafe. In fact, Spanish paper La Marca claims that Ramos was released by Sevilla and has already agreed to a four-year, $10 million contract with the North London club. Spurs apparently issued an ultimatum to Ramos to join the club now or never; the Spaniard, who has won the UEFA Cup two years in a row with Sevilla, met with Sevilla President Jose Maria Del Nido earlier Friday to discuss his future. Tottenham has already hired former midfielder Gus Poyet as assistant coach.

Blackburn manager Mark Hughes has also been tipped as a potential successor to Jol, although the Welshman, whose men face Spurs this weekend, claimed to have no interest in the position. "I've seen my name a couple of times linked with it but I just view that as a reflection on the job myself and the staff are doing here, and the players are doing," he said. "My interest is solely in Blackburn Rovers."

Jol, meanwhile, is already being linked with a move to Ajax, who recently lost its coach Hank Ten Cate to Chelsea. When his name was first linked with Ajax in August, the Dutchman replied, "I could walk out and go to a Champions League club." Ajax has since been knocked out of the Champions League and the UEFA Cup into which it then fell.
