The Mirror has just released a report where they say that Newcastle manager Steve McClaren is pushing hard for a £10M deal for Spurs winger Andros Townsend and is increasingly confident of getting the deal done this month.
The report says the new talks have taken place and Newcastle are pleased with the way they have been progressing.
Andros Townsend – deal getting closer?
£10M would be a good deal for Newcastle with news that Daniel Levy was holding out for £14M – but you never really know what exactly is going on with these transfers.
After all the fuss over Cheick Tiote and problems he was supposed to be having in joining Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua a few days ago, Steve McClaren said today he saw no problems with the move and expected it to go through.
If Newcastle can get Townsend in it would be a great acquisition for Newcastle – because the England International winger will give give Steve McClaren different options up front.
The Mirror are reporting today that new talks have taken place and that Newcastle are happy with how they have been progressing.
That’s even though the report says that Daniel Levy, the Tottenham Chairman is pushing once again for more money from the Tyneside club.
The 24-year-old old fashioned winger is reported to be very keen to join Newcastle and is pushing Tottenham to give him the move he wants his month, after being frozen out of the first team by manager Mauricio Pochettino this season.
Andros can certainly help Newcastle in our relegation battle.
