Update On Newcastle January Target

There have been different reports about whether Tottenham Hotspur will allow Andros Townsend to go on loan this January and it seems like Andros wants to leave the north London club after his altercation with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner.

That was probably started because of Townsend’s frustration at getting so little playing time at Spurs.

Spurs talented manager Mauricio Pochettino has said the winger still has a future at Tottenham who are having a very good second season under the Argentine and they are currently 5th top of the Premier League on 25 points.

Spurs winger Andros Townsend – Newcastle target

Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy has said his piece on the 24 year-old England International winger Levy at Tottenham’s members’ forum:

“If the football side say it affects equilibrium of the squad if we have a player that doesn’t want to be here then we look at it,” “In the end, it’s up to Mauricio to decide who he does or doesn’t want.”

Sunderland are interested in the player but if big Sam Allardyce goes after him it would have to be  a straight sale.

Tottenham right-back DeAndre Yedlin has already moved to Sunderland on loan and they are only allowed to have one player from Tottenham on loan.

With Newcastle being in a worrying position already this season after 14 games – we are second bottom of the league on just 10 points – we are hoping a number of good players will be drafted in to try to save us this season and keep us in the Premier League.

Andros would be a great acquisition for us.

It’s a worrying time right now for the (very) long-suffering Newcastle fans and we hope the powers that be at the club do everything they can to not only save us this season – but to make Newcastle great again.

At the moment unless things change quickly we don’t have much hope of that happening.


But you never know.
