Just under a week ago the Spurs official website was heaping praise on Andros Townsend after his goal and all round contribution helped Leeds United to a 3-2 win over local rivals Doncaster. However, news today confirms that the winger has returned to the club with a cry of ‘good riddance’ from Neil Warnock ringing in his ears.
“I’ve lost Townsend,” Warnock Leeds’ official website.
“I’m disappointed because we’ve lost a player, but I don’t want people who don’t want to be here so good riddance I say if it’s what he wants to do.”
“His agent told me he didn’t like here, he wasn’t happy and he hadn’t settled.
“I’ve heard that Birmingham want to sign him, I don’t know if that’s got anything to do with it.
Andros featured heavily in Spurs’ Europa League campaign, scoring a spectacular goal against Shamrock Rovers but with plenty of cover in the left wing position, his opportunities must be limited. There’s no word yet as to whether Birmingham want a permanent deal but maybe it’s time for Townsend to seek a future outside of White Hart Lane?
