According to Sky Sports, Spurs have accepted a £12 million offer for the out-of-favour Townsend, who has barely featured for the club in the 2015-16 season:


Newcastle Challenge Perfect for Townsend

The 24-year-old was one of the top breakout performers of the 2013-14 Premier League season, but his development has stalled in the last year, and a lack of opportunities hasn't helped matters.

A product of Tottenham's academy, Townsend impressed during several loan stints before he was given the chance to prove himself with his parent club in 2013. He showed flashes of his vast potential but only scored one Premier League goal that season, and he failed to take the next step in 2014-15, per WhoScored.com.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino seemed to lose all trust in the tricky winger this season, and Townsend has been forced to work with the under-21 side for the majority of the campaign.

On Monday, he took to social media to express his delight at working with the youngsters, an indication he could be leaving White Hart Lane shortly.

Townsend needed a fresh start badly, and with Newcastle struggling in the Premier League and in dire need of another creative forward, he will have the opportunity to impress the Magpies almost immediately.

Newcastle have landed a young, talented player who looked like a future star just two years ago, a solid return for a fee of just £12 million.
