TOTTENHAM will reportedly install Ryan Mason as caretaker after sacking Nuno Espirito Santo.
And chairman Daniel Levy is thought to be eyeing Porto’s Sergio Conceicao as a full-time replacement.
Nuno was given his marching orders on Monday after a weekend of intense pressure in north London.
The Portuguese arrived at the club’s Hotspur Way training ground to learn his fate.
He was axed moments later after the club confirmed the news in a 92-word statement on their website.
Fan favourite Mason is expected to be appointed on a temporary basis, according to reports.
The 30-year-old has filled the same caretaker role before when he became the youngest person to manage in the Premier League.

He spent seven games in charge at the end of last season after Jose Mourinho was fired just before the Carabao Cup final.
Mason has a close history with the club since joining the youth set-up at the age of eight.
He is currently Head of Player Development in the Spurs’ Academy.
Porto boss Conceicao is thought to be one of the names in the mix to replace Nuno on a full-time basis.
The 46-year-old has impressed since taking over at Estadio do Dragao in 2017.
Undefeated Porto currently sit top of the Primeira Liga with eight wins from 10 this season.
But Conceicao is currently behind favourite Antonio Conte in the pecking order at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Levy is understood to have lined up the Italian in preparation for Nuno's exit.
Talks with Conte reportedly broke down this summer before Nuno was appointed but Spurs are hopeful he will take the reins this time.
