Tottenham Hotspur will not be making any decisions over the future of Alex Pritchard in the January transfer window, according to a report in West London Sport.
Pritchard has attracted the attention of a number of clubs over the season so far, which he has spent on loan at Brentford, but Mauricio Pochettino will assess the winger's ability before making any permanent decision over his future.
West Bromwich Albion, Leicester City and Burnley had all been interested in signing Pritchard on loan in the January transfer window, but he will be allowed to continue with the Bees.
Spurs had a clause in the 21-year-old's current loan deal which allowed them to relocate him in January, but they are not interested in doing so.
Pritchard is in blistering form at Brentford and the club feel that moving him away from an environment he is so comfortable in would be detrimental to his development.
That is good news for Mark Warburton's men who have made Pritchard one of the key players in their starting line-up.
The thought is that the Championship side are hoping to sign him on a permanent deal when his loan expires, but it would seem they may have an anxious wait next summer before being able to conclude any transfer.
Pritchard has only made one appearance for Tottenham to date, but his attacking intent makes him an exciting prospect and he will be determined to make his mark during a summer which looks set to define his future at White Hart Lane.
