One of Tottenham Hotspur’s highest hopes to break through to the first team has joined Norwich City for an undisclosed fee.
Alex Pritchard was somewhat hampered by injury during his potential opportunity to break into Mauricio Pochettino’s first team squad which limited him to making just two Premier League appearances since graduating through the club’s academy.
The England Under-21 international has previously had loan spells at the likes of Peterborough, Swindon, West Brom and Brentford. It was at the Bees where he most impressed in 2014/15 campaign, scoring 12 goals in 47 games.
Spurs fans had hoped afterwards that a full Championship campaign would allow him to make the step up into the senior Spurs set-up.
Pritchard had been heavily linked with a move to Swansea City, but has instead joined the recently-relegated Canaries.
Pritchard told Norwich’s official website: “I’m ready to come here, fight for my place and hopefully play well.
“I feel I need to go out and prove myself again in football. I’m 23 now so it’s about time I had my own path really.
“I’ve had a full pre-season and with our first game at the weekend I’m looking forward to hopefully bedding myself in quickly.”
