Spurs have announced that Alex Pritchard has been sold to Norwich City.

Just a couple of days ago it looked as if Pritchard was moving to Brighton, with a fee between the clubs and personal details agreed, but Norwich hijacked the deal at the eleventh hour.

The fee is undisclosed but Tottenham’s original deal with Brighton was said to rise as high as £8m, based on performances. Having been relegated from the Premier League last season, Norwich are one of the favourites to go back up and it’s likely that any promotion will ensure a windfall for Spurs.

Pritchard was a huge success in his last season in the Championship. He scored 12 goals from midfield while on loan at Brentford in 2014-15 and was given a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s squad last season, to prove himself in the Premier League.

Unfortunately, injuries robbed Pritchard of the chance to show his worth to Pochettino and a loan move to West Brom in January was a disaster, as he played just four times for the Baggies.

Pritchard is clearly a player with some talent and we hope that he can bounce back from his disappointments at Norwich and will soon be back in the Premier League.

  1. Great signing if he can produce the form he had at Brentford. When Brentford came to Carrow Road he was by far the best player on the pitch, would go as far to say he was the most impressive player I saw all season…… Good to see a creative option as Wes entires the twilight of his career….

    Now all we need as a striker and a central defender…. Which is what I said last year!

    Ps not sad to miss out on McCormack, would much rather a find an up and coming striker.

  2. another example of how unfair the parachute payments make it for everyone else in the championship that let`s face it, did not have a disaster of a season and get relegated !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Another case of rewarding failure over ambition !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I agree that Pritchard is a good signing and will give us a much needed boast going forward from midfeild .I still think we need another sriker and central defender in case of any injuries.

  4. Appalling decision to sell our most creative player. No idea what is going on at Spurs.

    The Spurs academy has been a failure. Kane is the only player from the academy to become a first team regular since Ledley King.

    Very poor transfer window so far.

    • I disagree about the “very poor transfer window” bit but I do think selling Pritchard was a mistake. I saw him some time ago in a “Next Gen” match against Barcelona and he really stood out.

      I can only assume that given the midfielders we already have, he would struggle (right now) to get any kind of regular football at the Lane, so it is only fair to him that he be allowed to keep developing, as Kane did.

      Would have preferred we loan him out again though.

    • I agree with one thing you wrote: you have no idea what is going on at the Club, so better leave it with Poch, Levy and Mitchell to do what they together think will benefit our Club in the long run.
      COYS!
