New Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has moved quickly to bring the former Bournemouth manager Kevin Bond on to his coaching staff at White Hart Lane.
The 51-year-old, who has worked as Redknapp's assistant at Portsmouth and Southampton in the past, was axed by the Cherries last month after spending just less than two years in charge at Dean Court.
Redknapp, who left Portsmouth at the weekend to take charge at Spurs, confirmed on Sky Sports News: "Kevin Bond's joined me.
"There are a couple of lads who've been here who I spoke to about joining us as well. We'll wait and see what happens with that one.
"I like Tim (Sherwood). I think he's very knowledgeable and great on the game.
"Yesterday was the big day. We got off to a great start (by beating Bolton 2-0). To win the game yesterday was all important, it changes the whole mood of the place.
"If we'd have got beaten yesterday I'd have been walking in here to a very low training ground but we're walking in having got a terrific result and that lifts the spirits of everybody.
"It's a tough week. We've got a big game at Arsenal on Wednesday and then Liverpool."
