Twitter reacts as Newcastle agree £12m Townsend fee


Reports claim that Spurs and Newcastle have agreed a fee of £12m for Andros Townsend.

Townsend has struggled to get playing time at Tottenham this season and as a favourite of Roy Hodgson, needs a move to stake a claim for a place in the England squad for Euro 2016.

With Newcastle needing quality reinforcements as they battle against relegation, it seems like a move that suits all parties, as Spurs claim a sizeable fee for a homegrown talent. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.


  1. thought Andros townsend was a good exciting player, sorry see him go,, if there a job at thfc for townsend or tom carroll I would say” Andros attack that oppositions goal at full speed,tom are those hotdogs ready yet “

  2. The master tacticians and opinionistas that berate Andros’s talent will soon regret their empty, ‘know it all’ attitude. The young man is a product of our team, loves Spurs and wanted to stay , but he has to make with the stubbornness of the main man. I respect Poch’s work and share his high ambitions and dreams , but I think he has got it wrong with this young player. I feel that the young man will shut up the sometimes vitriolic comments of some so-called Spurs supporters. I think he will make all of them eat their words. All the best young man!!!!!! I will be watching.

  3. I’d much rather have kept Townsend and sold Lamela. Still don’t know what he brings to the team. Never takes on his defender, rarely shoots, a liability in the tackle and all for £30M. Give me Andros any day.

  4. Good luck to A .Townsend at Newcastle I dont know the full story, But he was not playing
    his best football in the end at spurs, a new team is his answer, I just hope he will not stand
    out on the 15th of may, when we may need the points in our last game of the season.
