AVB today faced his first press conference as the new Tottenham head coach and was pushed on the future of Luka Modric to which he conceded that Spurs would be willing to let Modric go if the deal was right for the club.
“The interest that we have from various different clubs shows the importance of the player and what he’s done for Tottenham.
“It’s fair to say that the club respects Luka’s ambitions and his willingness to move on and he respects the fact that he’s an important player for the club and can help us move forward.
“Ongoing discussions will continue with these clubs until we reach an agreement which is acceptable for each party.”
He was then pushed on Joao Moutinho being tipped as his replacement to which he said: ” We are looking at Moutinho with some interest, that does not mean we are not looking at other targets”
