Premier League outfit Watford have entered the race to sign Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend, who looks set to leave the Magpies this summer following the club’s relegation.
The Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern have just about resigned themselves to the fact that they will be in the Championship next season and are now in much higher spirits.
The landlord has spotted this latest development on the future on Townsend in The Mirror, who are claiming that the Hornets are preparing to open the bidding with an offer in the region of £10.5 million.
The established Premier League performer was in fine form for the Magpies during the second half of last season, following his arrival in January but the club’s relegation could force the England man to move on.
One Newcastle fan is sat eating his burger and a pint meal deal and he says that he would love to see Townsend stay with the club but does concede that it will be difficult given their Championship status.
Newcastle fans, would you like to have Townsend around the club next season? Watford fans, is Townsend a good signing for the Hornets?
