Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Celtic, has accepted to lead Tottenham Hotspur.

The Australian has reportedly signed a two-year contract to take over in north London, according to sources. The deal’s fine print is still being sorted out before it is formally announced by both parties.

In the Scottish Cup final, Celtic defeated Inverness Caledonian Thistle 3-1 to win the trophy, giving the 57-year-old Australian his second consecutive domestic triple.

Since parting ways with Antonio Conte in March, Spurs have been looking for a new manager. However, they were unable to persuade Dutch Feyenoord’s Arne Slot and former Bayern Munich player Julian Nagelsmann that the position was the appropriate one for them.

Harry Kane’s future at the club will also now be a big worry as Postecoglou takes over a Tottenham squad that will not be participating in Europe next season due to a poor 8th-place finish in the Premier League.

Before his two-year tenure at Celtic, Postecoglou’s only prior managerial experience in Europe came from his time as the head coach of the Greek lower-league team Panachaiki.Nevertheless, he has had great success in both his home Australia and Japan’s top division with Yokohama F Marinos.
