LONDON (REUTERS) - Dutch coach Louis van Gaal has met Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy and his appointment at the end of the season looks a "done deal", compatriot Ruud Gullit told BBC radio on Saturday.

"I know for sure he was at Van Gaal's house, the chairman," said the former Netherlands great.

"I think it's a done deal but you never know," added Gullit who had a spell in charge of Tottenham's London rivals Chelsea from 1996-98.

The BBC said an unnamed Spurs source had questioned the timing of any meeting between van Gaal and Levy, suggesting it could have been before Tim Sherwood was appointed in December.
