AMSTERDAM, Netherlands -- Ajax coach Frank de Boer has confirmed Tottenham Hotspur has approached the Amsterdam club to test his interest in coaching the club.

In an interview with national broadcaster NOS on Tuesday, De Boer said he had been informed of Tottenham's call by Ajax football director Marc Overmars.

He said that until the season ends next week, he's concerned only with Ajax, which clinched the Eredivisie title on Sunday for the fourth consecutive time.

Then, he'll be willing to entertain the possibility of a change, though the 43-year-old coach said he's satisfied at Ajax, his first major coaching job.

"I'm going to listen and talk," he said. "Then I'll make my feelings known."

He added he sees room to make changes for the better at Tottenham, which appointed Tim Sherwood as head coach until the end of the season after firing his predecessor, Andre Villas-Boas, in December.
