Tottenham Hotspur have named Tim Sherwood as permanent manager until the end of the 2014-15 season.

The former Spurs midfielder led the north London side to a 3-2 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s on Sunday after being named as caretaker boss following Andre Villas-Boas’ sacking last Monday.

The 44-year-old, who made over 100 appearances for the Tottenham, rejoined Spurs in a coaching capacity after being appointed to Harry Redknapp’s staff in 2008.

A Tottenham statement read: “Following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas, the club can announce that Tim Sherwood has been appointed head coach with a contract to the end of the 2014-15 season.”

Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy added: “We were extremely reluctant to make a change mid-season, but felt we had to do so in the club’s best interests.

“We have a great squad and we owe them a head coach who will bring out the best in them and allow them to flourish and enjoy a strong, exciting finish to the season.

“We are in the fortunate position of having within our club a talented coach in Tim Sherwood.

“We believe Tim has both the knowledge and the drive to take the squad forward.”

Chris Ramsey, Les Ferdinand and Steffen Freund complete the first-team coaching set up.
