Transfer Rumours

Andros Townsend given game for kids for benefit of watching scouts

5 years ago

Andros Townsend was given a game for the Tottenham Under 21s on Monday night for the benefit of a number of watching scouts.

The 24 year old winger has played no first team football for three months now, including even in the Europa League.

Still yet to start a Premier League game this season, it is 11 months since Andros Townsend was named in the first eleven for a league match.

Clearly with no future at White Hart Lane, the England international lined up with the Spurs kids against Manchester United at Leigh Sports Village.

A crowd of 959, including watching scouts saw a slow start to the game from Andros Townsend with a lack of match practice not helping, though he impressed as the game went on.

Townsend created Tottenham’s consolation goal in a 3-1 defeat, his perfect cross finished by Pritchard.

Just before half-time the winger turned his opponent inside out before hitting the bar, whilst another cross from Andros Townsend saw Coulthirst send an effort wide.

No reports of which clubs were represented at Leigh Sports Village on Monday night but Newcastle, West Brom, Crystal Palace and Sunderland are the four clubs who have been closely linked with a potential bid.

It looks a no-brainer for Spurs to sell the winger now as he will only depreciate in value the longer he is out of first team football.
