There is rather dramatic news tonight in the Mail that Rafa Benitez would like to resign Andros Townsend at Newcastle and it seems that Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce may be open to the deal.
The question could be whether Andros Townsend is open to the deal with Newcastle well positioned at the top of the Championship maybe he would agree to come back to Newcastle.
Andros Townsend and Rafa Benitez – had great relationship
Certainly when Rafa was coaching Andros over the last two months of last season Andros was in the best form of his career and he was a star for Newcastle and finished second in our Player of the Season poll to Rob Elliot.
Andros has been nowhere near the form he showed at Newcastle at Crystal Palace this season, but maybe he will now realize that with a world-class manager coaching him he can reach his potential, which has always been huge.
And with Sam Allardyce not making a good start at Crystal Palace with a 3-0 defeat at West Ham today he needs the money to sign other players this month to as he tries to save Palace from relegation.
We’re not sure how accurate these reports are, but it wouldn’t surprise us at all if Rafa does wants to sign the winger again, because it was obvious he knew exactly how to get the best out of the England International.
Andros would be a good acquisition for us if we can him back in for £13M and he can score goals too.
Some fans will not want him back because he left us when we were in trouble, but we think that most fans would welcome him back.
Let’s find out.
