Swansea eyeing up move for £8m Spurs outcast

Swansea are considering an £8m move for Spurs’ Alex Pritchard, who has been told he’s free to leave White Hart Lane this summer, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has long been lauded as one of the most talented youngsters in the north London club’s ranks, but his future has been plunged into doubt of late.

After returning from a fruitless season-long loan at West Brom, Pritchard has been axed from Spurs’ pre-season plans in Australia and has since been told he will be allowed to move on should acceptable offers, around £8m, come in for him before the close of the current window.

And reports claim this has alerted Swansea, who are weighing up a bid for the nine-cap England U-21 international.

The Welsh club wanted the playmaker on loan last season but were beaten to his signature by West Brom, yet they have remained keen on him.

However, the Liberty Stadium outfit are reluctant tot match Spurs £8m valuation, with Pritchard still unproven at the top level.

The starlet has been loaned out to Peterborough United, Swindon Town, Brentford and the Baggies since 2013.
