Holland coach Louis van Gaal has hinted at a possible summer switch to Tottenham, reports the Daily Mirror.

Spurs only handed Tim Sherwood an 18-month contract as Head Coach in December, but chairman Daniel Levy is said to have flown out to meet Van Gaal twice to discuss the possibility of taking over at White Hart Lane after the summer’s World Cup.

Van Gaal said only last week, he was only interested in managing in the Premier League, having previously led teams in Germany, Spain and Holland.

And on Sunday the 62-year-old reiterated his desire to manage in England, claiming he would leave his position as Head Coach of the Netherlands after the summer’s World Cup.

“I will definitely not be in charge for the European [Championship qualifying] campaign. I don’t know where I will go next, normally I go with my pension, go to live in Portugal, but maybe there will come a new challenge,”┬áVan Gaal said.

“I have said before that a challenge should be a club in the Premier League. That’s a challenge. Maybe Tottenham are coming, but first we have to go to Brazil.”

Current Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood recently admitted his job may not be safe, even if the club manage a top four finish this season.
