Andros Townsend is set to join Newcastle United for £12 million.

The Tottenham Hotspur winger has played just 64 minutes of Premier League football this season after falling out of favour at the north London club.

According to The Guardian, Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy set a £14m asking price for the England player after Newcastle offered £10m earlier this month.

Tottenham fans have hailed Levy for extracting £12m for a player who hasn’t completed a full league game in two years.

Mauricio Pochettino is eager to free up space in his squad and requested Spurs accept a £12m bid, reported The Guardian.

The rest of the Twitterverse quickly got into expressing their bemusement.

Townsend’s banishment has hampered his chances of making Hodgson’s squad for the Euros in France but, with 15 league games remaining, Steve McClaren has offered him a lifeline.

Townsend will become McClaren’s third signing of the transfer window, joining Henri Saivet and Jonjo Shelvey as Newcastle’s winter spending reaches close to £30 million.

Currently 18th in the table, McClaren is desperate to avoid relegation and his spending spree shows it.
