Andros Townsend set for £12m Newcastle move from Tottenham

Andros Townsend hasn't featured for Tottenham's first team since October.

Andros Townsend has taken to Twitter to say goodbye to his Tottenham Hotspur colleagues in the under-21 squad ahead of his proposed departure for Newcastle United.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Townsend is close to joining Newcastle after the clubs agreed a fee, which Press Association Sport reports as £12 million, and following Monday's 2-0 defeat at Liverpool the 24-year-old thanked the club's under-21 team for accommodating him in recent months.

Townsend, who is set to earn £55,000 a week at Newcastle, is flying up on Tuesday to begin talks. He is set have a medical on Wednesday.

Townsend has not played for the Spurs first team since October and has been completely frozen out by manager Mauricio Pochettino after an altercation with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner in November.

Despite Pochettino's insistence that Townsend remains part of his squad, the England international never looked likely to add to his 64 minutes of Premier League football this season and he has played the last six matches with the U21s.

Townsend has been with Spurs since he was eight and made his debut against Charlton in the FA Cup in January 2011. After nine different loan spells, he finally made his breakthrough under coach Andre Villas-Boas in the 2013/14 season. He has ten England caps, scoring three times.
