Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend has reiterated his commitment to the club by insisting that he will “fight for the shirt”.
England international Townsend has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane this month, having struggled for playing time so far this season.
The 23-year-old has featured regularly in the League Cup and the Europa League, but he remains a squad player when it comes to the Premier League.
Having started Spurs’ last two league matches - against Manchester United and Chelsea at White Hart Lane - Townsend now wants to retain his place in the line-up, and insists that he will give his all on the pitch.
"They’ve given me the chance to get 90 minutes under my belt so whoever the manager picks we know that they will give it their all and fight for the shirt and try to get us into the next round.”
This is the second time in the space of a few days that Townsend has professed his commitment to Tottenham’s cause (click here to read more).
It seems pretty clear that the winger wants to remain part of an ambitious Spurs team and play regularly, but the problem is that on the pitch he does not do enough.
Doubts remain on his quality, and many believe that there are better players than him at Tottenham.
Perhaps a squad player is what Townsend will be at Spurs for the time being.
