It seems that Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend has been made unavailable for transfer.

Tottenham Hotspur are no longer looking to sell Andros Townsend, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Spurs had been expected to cash in on the 23-year-old winger, but Mauricio Pochettino has apparently had a change of opinion. 

Townsend has reportedly worked his way off the transfer list due to his form in recent weeks, where he has got back to his very best.

The England international burst onto the scene back in back in 2013, but he has failed to progress as Spurs had hoped.

Under Pochettino he originally appeared out of favour, but it seems the Argentine tactician now appreciates his value to the squad and wants to keep him in North London. 

Townsend had been linked with moves to Southampton and Sunderland, but the Premier League duo are set to be disappointed. 

The player has stated his desire to remain at White Hart Lane and it appears that his wish will be granted. 

The news casts Aaron Lennon's future at White Hart Lane into further doubt, with a number of teams across England reportedly ready to bid for the experienced wide man.
