“The club can announce that agreement has been reached with head coach, Andre Villas-Boas, for the termination of his services,” said a short statement on the club’s official website. “The decision was by mutual consent and in the interests of all parties.
“We wish Andre well for the future. We shall make a further announcement in due course.”
Villas-Boas leaves White Hart Lane with Spurs seventh in the Premier League table, five points off the top four and eight points off leaders and local rivals Arsenal.
