1. Andros Townsend | Tottenham

Manchester United supporters must have been left breathing a huge sigh of relief when the January transfer window slammed shut, because despite various reports to the contrary, the Red Devils were not interested in signing Tottenham and England winger Andros Townsend.

A few half-decent performances at the start of the 2013/14 campaign and, all of a sudden, the 22-year-old was being hailed as the next Cristiano Ronaldo.

The truth is, he’s a one-trick pony who shoots far too much and lacks the required decision-making skills - at this stage in his career, anyway - to be a consistent performer for a big club.

The fact that Spurs loaned him out to nine Football League teams speaks volumes.
