Those famous ‘Sky sources’ have today reported that Spurs are ready to sell Alex Pritchard.

The club are said to be looking for a fee in the region of £8m for the 23-year old, who spent the latter half of the season on-loan at West Brom.

Last season was meant to be Pritchard’s shot at the big time. After a hugely successful loan spell with Brentford in the Championship, Pritchard was given a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, only for an ankle injury to ruin the opportunity.

The England U21 international played just one game for Tottenham last season, before a loan spell at West Brom which fell flat. In retrospect, Pritchard would have been far better off dropping back down to the Championship to play for promoted Burnley, but instead it was decided at the last minute that he should join the Baggies. Pritchard only played twice under Tony Pulis – a manager not famed for his love of diminutive attacking midfielders.

Many Spurs fans were excited at the prospect of Pritchard taking his place in the squad and it would be sad if he were to leave the club without anyone really knowing if he was up to it. While it might be difficult to give an untried player the sufficient opportunities in a new season in which Tottenham will compete in the Champions League, a loan spell to a Premier League club might be the perfect compromise.

Would you sell Pritchard, or is he potentially too bright a talent to let go without an opportunity?

  1. I would loan him again to sides such as Bournemouth or Swansea where his style of play will be appreciated. If he is to go to a lower level team then Glasgow rangers would be good bet too. I think if we thinking of selling him that would suggest balancing the books.

  2. This lad was meant to be the star of the current crop. He won’t be sold he was unfortunate to get an injury and then a strange loan to the baggies. I hope he is given a chance next season…..

  3. Play him in friendlies, capital one and FA, he deserves an opportunity to shine. If he doesn’t impress then move him on. Don’t forget how good he was 18 months ago.

  4. i agree with you Will;pritchard is a good winger that’s for sure but not competing at european level so i wud suggest keeping him in the fisrt team to be playing domestic league matches like the capital one and FA cups
