The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards – the former Journal reporter – is reporting tonight that Newcastle could well miss out this month on getting Andros Townsend in on loan with an option to buy the player in the summer.
Newcastle have been pursuing their former winger for over a week now, but it now looks like the deal may not be done this month after all.
Highly unlikely Townsend will be returning to #nufc this month. Looking elsewhere. Might be rekindled in the summer I suppose

If we cannot sign him this month it seems Rafa may try to resurrect the deal in the summer, but maybe Andros’ best chance for a Newcastle return was for the Tyneside club to get him in this month.
If we do get promoted this season there are other players we could well go after in the summer.
When first reported that Newcastle were again interested in signing Townsend after only he had been only seven months away at Crystal Palace it seemed even sensational.
But at least according to the Telegraph that’s now unlikely to happen.
What do you think?
