It was reported last week that Brentford’s technical director Lee Dykes has ‘emerged as a contender‘ for the role of sporting director as Totenham seek replacement for Fabio Paratici.
Fabio Paratici last month resigned from his role as a sporting director after his appeal against the ban was rejected.
The Italian was banned from all football activities by Italian football and the ban for a a financial fraud scandal during his time at Juventus. The ban was then extended globally by FIFA due to which the Italian had to step down from his role.
This has left the club without a sporting director and without a manager as the season draws to an end.
Daniel Levy is currently in search for both the vacancies alongside newly appointed Chief Football Officer Scott Munn who is brought in to head all operations at the club.
Despite the recent links, Tottenham expert Alasdair Gold has dismissed them claiming that Lee Dyke is not being considered for the job.
“I suppose I have an idea of who they want.”
“You would think but you know we’ve seen some of the other names that have kind of have been looked., Roma’s Thiago Pintoum, Tim Staten who used to be it by Leverkusen as well as two very very different candidates there as well.”
“There was also, I know, a lot of talk about Lee Dykes at Brentford.
“From what I understand, he’s not a candidate being considered.”
Lee Dykes was named the sporting director at Brentford last summer after his impressive work as the head of scouting.
