Charlton manager Alan Curbishley has refused to rule himself out of the running for the vacant job at Tottenham.
Curbishley, 45, has emerged as the bookmakers' favourite to succeed Glenn Hoddle at White Hart Lane, yet the Premiership's second-longest serving boss
says he does not expect to be offered the chance to do so.
Charlton chairman Richard Murray attempted to ward off any potential interest from the other side of the Thames last week when he suggested it would
cost Spurs £5million in compensation.
Although Curbishley remains vague on the issue, he did suggest that kind of figure made him laugh.
Recent reports have suggested the former West Ham and Aston Villa midfielder, who has been in charge of the Addicks since 1991, has a £1million
get-out clause in his Valley contract, which has the best part of three years to run.
