Andros Townsend seems like he will almost certainly leave Tottenham in January after the altercation he had with a fitness coach at the end of the 3-1 home win against Aston Villa on Monday night at White Hart Lane.
What made things worse was that after the altercation Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino went public and said that Townsend would not be allowed to train with the first team squad this week and he will not be in the squad for tonight’s Europa League game against Anderlecht.
Andros Townsend – bust up at Tottenham
This is what Mauricio said after the altercation:
“Andros Townsend did not train with the group and he is not available to be selected.” t is because of Monday, if you behave the wrong way you always need to pay.”
“It is always my decision when he is available again to be part of the squad, discipline for me is very important.”
Andros was obviously very frustrated that he didn’t get an outing against Aston Villa which caused the altercation.
Newcastle were linked with Townsend in the summer and if he is indeed a target for us in January there’s now a good chance we could get him to Tyneside, although there will be other clubs interested in the England International.
For his own good Andros will want to move to a side where he will get regular football to give him every chance to make the England squad for the European 2016 finals in France next summer.
The 24 year-old 10 times capped England International would be a good acquisition for Newcastle – maybe even on loan through the end of the season.
It’s clear Newcastle will be very active in the transfer market in January and only today we have been linked with Dutch International winger Anwar El Ghazi.
