Tottenham demand £14m for England international, refuse loan swoop

Andros TownsendTottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are questioning whether their chairman has made the right call as they play darts ahead of their crucial clash with Leicester City this evening, following reports of a firm stance.

The Mirror state Daniel Levy is refusing to sanction a loan exit for exiled winger Andros Townsend and is instead demanding £14m to secure a permanent exit for the England international.

Townsend is keen to move on from White Hart Lane this month to increase his first-team football opportunities, which will prove effective as he aims to land a spot in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the European Championships.

However, so far any proposals made for Townsend’s signature have been on a temporary basis and Levy is not prepared to accept a deal, despite Townsend’s preference to seal a temporary exit as he feels he’ll have more clubs to choose from in the summer.

Watford and West Brom are keen on a loan deal, with the former Townsend’s preferred destination, but the two Premier League clubs could easily baulk at the hefty asking-price for a player who’s only featured in U21 games since October.

Our landlord believes Tottenham should approve a temporary exit, as he feels they could get more money for his services in the summer.

Spurs fans, is this the right call from your chairman? Let us know in the comments below!
