Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy says Wednesday "Franco is extremely well respected in the industry, possessing an extensive knowledge of players around the world."

Baldini has also been sporting director at Real Madrid.

Levy adds that Baldini "will strengthen our football management team, particularly in the field of recruitment, working closely with (manager) Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood across all levels on the playing side."
