Tottenham Alex Pritchard

The talented midfielder has been in great form this season at Brentford

Tottenham Hotspur have rightly been praised this season for their utilisation of young players. The likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb have been superb this season, the former of course banging in goals and making it into the England senior set-up, along with Mason and fellow Tottenham product Andros Townsend.

But not all their star youngsters are currently featuring at White Hart Lane.

Alex Pritchard has been tremendous during a loan spell with Championship side Brentford this term. He has played 44 times this season, scoring 11 goals and assisting seven.

He is also a regular with England's under-21s and is looking a hot prospect for the future.

Now, he has been recognised for his performances by his peers.

The PFA Championship Team of the Year has been announced today, with Pritchard slotting in on the left-hand side of midfield. He was included along with the likes of Troy Deeney of Watford and Bakary Sako of Wolves after helping Brentford to a surprising and impressive promotion tilt this season.

Next term he will be hoping to be among the first-team picture at Tottenham, but until then he will be focused on taking Brentford into the play-offs on the final day of the season next week.
