Andros Townsend Back To Spurs after Leeds Departure

Andros Townsend: Back in Lilywhite or Soon To Be a Blue?

Interesting news out of Elland Road today, as Spurs left winger Andros Townsend's loan to Leeds United has been cut short. New Leeds manager Neil Warnock says it was a choice made by Townsend, who had supposedly not settled well and wasn't happy with the Championship side, and his agent.

If that's true, then Townsend didn't show it on the pitch. Townsend had been a revelation with Leeds since joining at the beginning of 2012, appearing seven times and scoring a decisive goal against Doncaster Rovers last weekend. Townsend has emerged this season as another left wing threat for Spurs and his next move will be an interesting one.

Normally there would seem to be no place for Townsend in the Tottenham side. But after Benoit Assou-Ekotto's groin surgery last week, Townsend might be needed to stay around to provide some left back depth as Spurs push for a top-3 finish and FA Cup trophy.

However, Warnock seems to believe otherwise. Reports indicate Warnock believes that Birmingham City, helmed by former Tottenham Hotspur great Chris Hughton, is pursuing Townsend for a loan. Such a move would launch Townsend deep into the Blues' promotion hunt, as they currently stand third in the Championship table. After losing Jean Beausejour in the transfer window, it seems Townsend would have a shot for immediate, important minutes with Birmingham City.
