Newcastle have been linked with £8M rated Spurs midfielder Alex Pritchard for some time and there are now some Premier League clubs like Swansea City and Middlesbrough interested in signing the 23 year-old Englishman, who was born in Orsett in Essex.
It could be that he is one of about three players Rafa will be trying to sign for Newcastle as soon as possible and certainly before the Championship season starts on August 5th at Craven Cottage.
Alex Pritchard – Newcastle 2/1 favorites to sign him
Other Championship clubs interested in Pritchard include Leeds United and Wolves.
It’s been clear for some time now that Alex is not in the plans of Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and he is available for transfer.
It now looks like Newcastle are favorites to sign the player and at Bet Victor, Newcastle are at 2/1 favorites to sign Alex.
Here’s the current betting on which club he will sign for:
Pritchard has Championship experience having played in the league twice in his career so far.
He was on loan at Peterborough for half a season in early 2013 – and then he was on a season-long loan at Brentford in 2014-2015 and played 45 league games scoring 12 goals.
We really hope the Magpies can sign the 9 times capped England U-21 International.
