Dutch club RKC Waalwijk have denied reports coach Martin Jol is set to leave to become assistant manager to new Tottenham boss Jacques Santini.
Jol played in England with Coventry and West Brom
Jol was believed to be on a shortlist of names drawn up by new Spurs director of football Frank Arnesen.
But a statement to BBC Sport from Waalwijk said: "There has been no contact between Tottenham Hotspur and RKC Waalwijk about Martin Jol."
Jol was linked to a similar move to Manchester United earlier this year.
