Harry Redknapp has left Tottenham after almost four years in charge.
Veteran manager Redknapp, who was heavily linked with the England job before the Football Association opted for Roy Hodgson, had denied speculation that he had resigned on Tuesday.
The 65-year-old had a year left on his contract but reportedly failed to agree a new deal with chairman Daniel Levy.
Everton manager David Moyes is a contender for the job but the Toffees have received no approach for the Scot.
Redknapp left Portsmouth for Tottenham, who were four points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League, in October 2008.
He guided Spurs to a first-ever Champions League campaign in 2010.
After finishing fourth last season, Tottenham only missed out on a repeat of that when Chelsea won the Champions League.
Redknapp was immediately installed as the favourite to replace Fabio Capello when the Italian resigned from the England job in February, only for the FA to move for Hodgson.
He admitted last week that he would have left Tottenham if he had been offered the national job.
