Everton to rival Newcastle for Andros Townsend signing

Published Add your comment

Everton look set to join Newcastle United in the hunt for Tottenham Hotspur star Andros Townsend. 

Toffees' boss Roberto Martinez is once again interested in bringing the 22-year-old England international to Goodison Park, after failing in his attempts last summer. 

It is also believed that Alan Pardew has set his sights on the pacey winger, as he looks to freshen his squad up during the summer also. 

Townsend will miss next month's World Cup after failing to recover from the ankle injury he picked up near the end of the Premier League season. 

It was a massive blow to both player and country, after he impressed during England's World Cup qualifying campaign.

The midfielder was loaned to nine clubs before breaking into the Spurs first team and made 25 appearances this season. 

With Tottenham set to appoint a new manager imminently after relieving Tim Sherwood of his duties, Townsend may find himself one of several players not in the new bosses' plans.
