Pritchard was expected to feature in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad this season, but after an injury-hit campaign, a move to get regular football makes sense for everyone.
With the future of Saido Berahino rumbling on, re-establishing a dialog with West Brom can’t have done Tottenham’s hopes of landing the player any harm.
Newcastle have bid for the player, but the Baggies are said to be reluctant to sell to a club that they are competing with to avoid relegation.
