SPURS go into their final home game of the season against Aston Villa on Sunday all but assured of a Europa League spot next year.

Manager Tim Sherwood will be without Andros Townsend, who tore ankle ligaments against Stoke and will now miss this summer’s World Cup.

But Spurs could welcome right back Kyle Walker, who has been out for six weeks with a groin strain.

The Villa visit of looks likely to be Sherwood’s last game in charge as the club prepares for another summer of change. Southampton’s Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax manager Frank De Boer have been  linked with the job in recent months, while the latest rumours include a cheeky attempt to prise Everton’s Roberto Martinez away from Goodison Park.

Transfer news is also beginning to go into overdrive. David Marshall and Steven Caulker from relegated Cardiff are in the frame, while Spurs have once more been linked with a string of strikers. This week Porto’s Jackson Martinez and Zenit St Petersburg’s Hulk have both been mooted as potential targets.

Meanwhile on Monday, Tottenham are hosting a testimonial for Ledley King – and the evening match promises to be packed with a whole host of old favourites.

Already confirmed are host of fans favourites including  David Ginola, Paul Robinson, Teddy Sheringham, Dimitar Berbatov, Peter Crouch, Darren Anderton and Stephen Carr.

Tickets are £20 for adults and £10 for children and can be purchased via the club website.
