Interim manager Tim Sherwood hopes to talk to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy on Monday to find out whether he will be staying on as Andre Villas-Boas' successor.

The Portuguese was sacked less than 24 hours after last weekend's 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool, with head of football development Sherwood handed temporary control.

Sherwood's first match at the helm resulted in a Capital One Cup exit to West Ham, but on Sunday he oversaw his first victory with an attack-minded display at Southampton.

Emmanuel Adebayor netted either side of a Jos Hooiveld own goal as Spurs ran out 3-2 victors.

The win will certainly not do his chances of landing the job on a full-time basis any harm and Sherwood hopes to take control of the St Stephen’s Day clash with West Brom with a clearer idea on his future.

Asked what happens next for him, Sherwood said: "Ideal for me is to have a chat with the chairman and see what's best for the football club moving forward.

"I need to know what they're thinking moving forwards. I don't want this job for five minutes. That's no interest to me.

"It is either are we going to move it forward or not? That's where we are.

"There are some great candidates out there for this job. It's a massive club with history and tradition.

"It is fantastic, a great honour to represent them, but it needs to be right for me and, first and foremost, right for the football club.

"I need to talk to the chairman and see what he's got planned. I'll see him tomorrow because I'm in at the training ground. I'm sure it won't be before that."
