“It has been very flattering to be linked with the club,” said Sherwood.
“If I had ever wanted to get back into football the club I would choose would be Tottenham and the manager I would work for would be Harry Redknapp.
“I spoke to Harry yesterday and will do again tomorrow. I have to make my mind up whether or not it is the right time to get back into football.
“It’s a great opportunity and I bet there’s a queue a mile long to take the job.
“I’ve talked to my father and he told me I had nothing to think about.
“What it boils down to is if I want to get back into football again and dedicate 100% of my time to the game and I have to make that decision because a club like Tottenham and a manager like Harry Redknapp demands that and you wouldn’t expect it any other way.”
