There´s news today that Tottenham´s England International winger Andros Townsend has turned down a move to West Brom because he would prefer a move to Newcastle United.
The Chronicle are reporting today that Tottenham have informed Newcastle, the 24 year-old winger turned down a move to the Baggies because he wants a move to Newcastle.
Andros Townsend – wants Newcastle move
The 24-year-old does not want to go to West Brom as part of a part exchange deal that would see Saido Berahino finally join Tottenham.
If the Magpies are interested we could potentially sign Andros on loan for the rest of the season and depending on how he does – decide in the summer whether to make the deal permanent.
Sky Sports are reporting today that Newcastle are monitoring the Townsend situation, with a view to making a bid.
The Chronicle are saying that Newcastle still want Loic Remy on loan this month.
He would be a terrific loan signing for us and we already know he can do a job at Newcastle, after his successful loan spell in the 2013-2014 season when he scored 14 goals in 27 appearances.
If Newcastle can get both Andros Townsend and Loic Remy in on loan – in addition to permanent signings Saivet and Shelvey – it would be a good January transfer window for Newcastle – and the loan deals would help to keep the cost down.
However, we would also like to see a defender bought in this month – maybe a top left-back?
