Leeds boss says good riddance to Spurs player

7

Andros Townsend’s loan deal at Leeds United has ended at the request of the player.

The Spurs winger joined the Championship club on New Year’s day, penning a deal until the end of the campaign – but with the recent appointment of Neil Warnock, Townsend has decided to head back south.  Whether that has anything to do with the decision is anyone’s guess.

There are rumours that he could instead join Birmingham City which was suggested by the Leeds boss.  Warnock is glad to see the midfielder leave if he has no desire to be at Elland Road.

“I’ve lost Townsend,” Warnock told the club’s official website.

“I’m disappointed because we’ve lost a player, but I don’t want people who don’t want to be here so good riddance I say if it’s what he wants to do.”

“His agent told me he didn’t like here, he wasn’t happy and he hadn’t settled.

“I’ve heard that Birmingham want to sign him, I don’t know if that’s got anything to do with it.

“I’m disappointed because we’ve lost a player, but I don’t want people who don’t want to be here so good riddance I say if it’s what he wants to do.”

  1. I think you’ll find it’s your young player that is a cock my friend – what is it with these young players?

    It’s not as if he’s gonna get in the Spurs 1st XI and the way Brum are playiong at the moment, he’ll be on the bench there too!

    We are fortunate to have an excellent youth system at Leeds and no doubt Townsend’s loss will be someone else’s gain!

  2. as tottenham supporter i understand him if hes not settled ,its hard too play good when you are not settled, i believe leeds is a perfect club for him too grow at. But at the same time, brums manager knows him alot from the time in tottenham

  3. If your youth system is that good why did you want to borrow this player in the first place? Could this be that the manager has already started to upset the players most have to put up with it, Townsend does not.

  4. Warnock is a top bloke. One of the nicest you will meet. This artical has made him out like he is being out of order. He wanted to keep him there but the player wasnt happy and that is good of, Warnock, Leeds and Townsend to call it a day. But dont make out Warnock is something he isnt just for a story.
