Southampton prepare second swoop to sign Tottenham Hotspur ace

Southampton are preparing to table their second offer to sign Andros Townsend after their initial bid of £10million was rejected by Tottenham Hotspur, Mirror reports.

Ronald Koeman still has adequate funds available after selling a majority of the Saints’ starting eleven over the summer, and is still trying to add reinforcements to his side before the close of the transfer window.

The 23-year-old winger may not get a lot of playing time under Mauricio Pochettino and has been linked with a number of domestic clubs over the past few months.

However, a deal is highly unlikely after Spurs were constantly rejected by Koeman’s side over a potential move for Morgan Schneiderlin as well as Jay Rodriguez.

With a move to see the French central midfielder go to White Hart Lane not happening, it is believed that Pochettino will return the favour by rejected any bids for Townsend.
