Leeds United, Newcastle United, and Norwich City have all shown an interest in loaning Tottenham Hotspur’s wantaway exciting prospect Alex Pritchard, according to the Daily Mirror.
Earlier in the summer, Alex Pritchard was one of six players on the fringe of the first team that had been explicitly told that he no longer had a future at the club, and was no longer part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans.
This was compounded earlier this week when Pritchard was left out of Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-season tour to Australia, it appears that the former England Under-21 international will look to move away from the Premier League side this summer.
Pritchard has been linked with a move to Swansea City who are considering paying the heavy price tag of between £8-10 million to secure the talented youngster’s signature on a permanent basis.
However, after suffering an injury-plagued season, Guidolin may steer clear of signing the youngster permanently.
Instead, Alex Pritchard has been linked with a move to the Championship on a temporary basis. Alex Pritchard’s most successful period of his early career was in fact on loan in the Championship with Brentford.
Three of the biggest teams in the Championship, Leeds United, Newcastle United and Norwich City have all made enquiries about signing the 23 year old playmaker on loan.
Although a loan move to the Championship to any of the clubs named above could be beneficial for Alex Pritchard, Tottenham Hotspur would prefer to sell the forward permanently.
