Newcastle ready to pay Townsend asking price

Newcastle United are willing to pay Tottenham Hotspur’s asking price of £12million according to a report in the Mail.

Townsend would prefer to go out on loan and settle future in the summer than move permanently in January, but is desperate to play football to try an salvage any outside hope he has of being named in England’s squad for the Euros.

Since falling out with Tottenham fitness coach Nathan Gardiner, Townsend has seen himself relegated to playing in the Under-21 squad.

Watford are also said to be keen on the winger – knowing Levy this will go down to the wire on transfer deadline day. It’s a shame to see a player who has come through the ranks and is a boyhood Spurs fan end his career at the club in such a way but it’s best for all parties if he now moves on and tries to get his career back on track.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Andros simply did not work hard enough to show he can defend as well as attack. He did not stop the "gaffes " that is dribbling ,loosing ball but not tracking back to retrieve(Lamela,Onamah, Lennon,dele-Alli all do it better) . I liked his positive attitude, the "fitness coach" incident was poor but whatever , as long as he does not give up ,it is possible to ressurect SPURS career if the work is put in. Newcastle with Sports Direct is not good going to Italy might be good.

  2. I think if Spurs can get 12 million for Andros it would be a very good deal for Spurs.
    All though he is a very good player he is not a team player and we haven’t missed him I wish him well.

  3. He is miles better than Chadli can’t believe we are letting him go . Chadli is one of the worst players I’ve ever seen in a spurs shirt . Townsend needs to play as he is one of those players the more he plays the better he gets . Big mistake

  4. In my book he is a great player to have on the bench. Always seems to play better when coming on late in the game. Whenever he starts, he rarely has a good game. He's a player that always looks for glory rather than pass to a player in a better position, that's why he often shoots from 20+ yards out. If we can get 12 mill for him we should take it.

  5. To be fair Townsend is not worth 12 million ,he is at moment worth between 6 and 8 million.he is young lad who will get better with more game time.yes his end product is not good at moment but with more experience he can be all round winger.if townsend was given chance like lamela or erikssen ,he would shine by now.if Newcastle get him.he will become good for them.
