- Match Analysis
Newcastle United have agreed to pay Tottenham Hotspur £12million for Andros Townsend.
The 24-year-old has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane since Mauricio Pochettino‘s arrival at the club a few years ago, making just three substitute appearances so far this season.
Townsend fell out of favour after having a row with the club’s fitness coach, which Pochettino punished him for by dropping him to the reserves and banning him from the match-day squad.
Townsend is now expected to undergo a medical in Newcastle before finalising his move to St James’ Park.
