Andros Townsend’s Spurs future has been in serious doubt this summer, with rumours of him permanently leaving the club increasing by the day.
And one club he has been linked with is Spurs’ opponents today – Queens Park Rangers.
Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has spoken of his desire to bring Townsend to Loftus Road this summer, although a £10m price-tag appears to have halted his chances of signing him.
But speculation of a switch across London will be back at it’s highest following the news that the winger has been left out of Spurs’ match day squad to face QPR at White Hart Lane this afternoon.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to that decision by Mauricio Pochettino…
Where the hell is Townsend? Selling him would be a huge mistake. Sell Lennon!

We better not sell Townsend, I'd understand Sandro and Dawson but not Townsend

The fact that Dawson, Sandro, Chiriches, Townsend and Paulinho haven't made the bench shows how much business we have still to do.

Maybe there is more to this Townsend stuff. I'd be surprised but then again this is Spurs.

Townsend will be the latest in the line of Spurs players to be extremely overrated b4 signing for a lesser PL side for around £8/10m IMO ..

So Townsend is gone then. Fully fit, not selected. Welbeck in. #Spurs
