From St Mary's to White Hart Lane, Pochettino in talks to become next Spurs manager

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino is in advanced talks with Tottenham to become the north London club's next manager, it is understood.

Pochettino has been linked with the role at Spurs for some time and it appears the wheels are in now motion for the Argentinian to succeed Tim Sherwood.

Sherwood, who had been appointed as a replacement for Andre Villas-Boas in December on an 18-month contract, was sacked earlier this month after guiding Tottenham to a sixth-placed finish in the Barclays Premier League.
