TOTTENHAM are on the verge of confirming Ange Postecoglou as the club's new first team manager.
Last week, SunSport exclusively revealed that the 57-year-old was in advanced talks with Spurs officials.
And according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the two parties have now reached a verbal agreement.
Postecoglou is set to sign a two-year deal with the option to extend for a further season, so he could remain in north London until June 2026.
Celtic are expected to hold discussions with Tottenham this week, but the Scottish Premiership champions have already resigned to losing the Aussie.
And due to his rolling one-year contract at Celtic Park, there will be no hefty compensation to pay.
SunSport revealed the Aussie wants Celtic No2 John Kennedy to join him in London.
Fellow coach Gavin Strachan as well as one of the first-team's video analysts are also expected to make the move south.
Postecoglou's appointment will mark the end of Tottenham's three-month search for a manager.
Former boss Antonio Conte left the club in March following an astonishing rant about his players.

During their search for a new permanent manager, the Lilywhites have been linked with Julian Nagelsmann, Xabi Alonso, Arne Slot, Thomas Frank and Simone Inzaghi.
Spurs decided against appointing Nagelsmann at the beginning of May, while Alonso and Slot both ruled themselves out of the running.
