Ange Postecoglou is edging closer to becoming the new Tottenham Hotspur manager with a verbal agreement now in place.
Tottenham Hotspur have cleared another hurdle in their attempts to appoint Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou.
That is according to Fabrizio Romano, who claims that a verbal agreement between Tottenham and Postecoglou is now in place.
Romano adds that the lengthy of Postecoglou’s contract with Tottenham will be two years, but there will be an option for a third.
That gives Tottenham the chance to work with Postecoglou until June 2026 if they so wish.
Tottenham must now negotiate with Celtic and attempt to strike a deal for the Australian to make his move.
That may well include coaching staff following Postecoglou with John Kennedy and Gavin Strachan linked with leaving Celtic for Spurs.

This deal looks to be moving quickly now.
The Daily Mail claim that Postecoglou has already told Celtic that he wants to leave the club for Tottenham.
The 57-year-old just can’t say no to Spurs and is now gearing up for his move to North London.
Postecoglou took charge of Celtic on Saturday evening, beating Inverness Caledonian Thistle 3-1 in the Scottish Cup final.
If that proves to be Postecoglou’s final game in charge of Celtic – which looks very likely – then it was a great occasion on which to go out.
Postecoglou secured a domestic treble with that win having already won the Scottish League Cup and Scottish Premiership this season.
Now written into Celtic folklore, Postecolgou has decided that now is the time to move on.
Celtic were a complete mess before Postecoglou’s arrival in 2021 and the way he has taken the club forward is hugely impressive.
The football has been outstanding to watch, Postecoglou has nailed his recruitment and Celtic have become the top force in Scotland again.
That deserves plenty of praise and Postecoglou’s work appears to have landed him a major Premier League job with a deal now close.
