Postecoglou will become the first Australian to manage in the Premier League, signing a four-year deal which begins on July 1.

Chairman Daniel Levy said: “Ange brings a positive mentality and a fast, attacking style of play. He has a strong track record of developing players and an understanding of the importance of the link from the academy – everything that is important to our Club. We are excited to have Ange join us as we prepare for the season ahead.”

Conte was sacked in March and a lengthy process to hire his successor ensued.

His assistant, Cristian Stellini, initially took temporary charge before being relieved of his duties amid a dismal run of results.

Ryan Mason was then installed as caretaker as Spurs slipped out of the European places entirely to finish eighth.

Several leading candidates emerged as potential replacements, from the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique, Arne Slot, Vincent Kompany and Xabi Alonso.

One by one, they all seemingly ruled themselves out of the running.

Attention then turned to Postecoglou, the Greek-Australian who enjoyed remarkable success at Celtic.

He won back-to-back Scottish Premiership titles, winning the domestic treble this season, despite scepticism when he was appointed.

Talks gathered pace once Celtic had won the Scottish Cup on Sunday with Postecoglou on a rolling 12 month contract.
