Yesterday, reports began to emerge that Swansea were preparing a move to sign our reserve winger Andros Townsend on a permanent deal when the transfer window opens again in the summer. Andros has impressed while on loan at Queens Park Rangers and with reports of Premiership interest coming in, the player is unlikely to be aiming for Championship football next season.
However, yesterday’s reports have been countered by stories emerging today suggesting that Swans Chairman Huw Jenkins has denied the deal. Swansea have enjoyed success fielding Spurs youngsters in the past and Steven Caulker really made his name with the club last year but Jenkins has apparently insisted that the rumours are unfounded.
As for Townsend’s future, he can cover either flank and even without the benefit of hindsight, is he good enough to stay at the club next season and understudy both Bale and Lennon on the wings?
