Townsend ends Leeds loan as Birmingham consider move

Spurs winger Andros Townsend has cut short his loan spell at Championship club Leeds United, reports Sky Sports News.

Townsend, 20, joined Leeds on loan for the remainder of the season on January 1, and has made seven appearances for the club since, scoring one goal. However, with Neil Warnock recently taking over as manager from the sacked Simon Grayson, Townsend has become the first face out of the door, though Warnock was at pains to point out that it was not at his behest.

“I’ve lost Townsend. His agent told me he didn’t like it here, he wasn’t happy and he hadn’t settled. I’m disappointed because we’ve lost a player, but I don’t want people who don’t want to be here, so good riddance I say if it’s what he wants to do.” Warnock also hinted that Townsend could be set for a similar loan agreement with fellow Championship club Birmingham, adding, “I’ve heard that Birmingham want to sign him, I don’t know if that’s got anything to do with it.”

Townsend has featured for England at U19 level, but has yet to establish himself in the Premier League for Tottenham. This is partly due to his being behind the vastly more experience Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon on the wings. He has completed several loan spells in the past at lower league clubs, including Ipswich, Watford, Millwall and Milton Keynes.
