Report: Tottenham youngster Alex Pritchard set for new contract offer

Tottenham youngster Alex Pritchard is set to be handed a new four-year deal.

According to ESPN FCTottenham Hotspur are set to offer Alex Pritchard a new long-term contract.

With the 22-year-old entering the final year of his current terms at White Hart Lane, reports suggest that the club are set to reward for him for his progress with a new four-year deal.

Pritchard impressed on loan at Brentford last term, making the PFA Championship Team of the Year as the Bees mounted an unlikely promotion bid, which fell short in the play-offs.

Having recorded 11 goals and seven assists in 47 appearances, his performances also earned him a place in the England Under-21 squad for this summer's European Championships.

It is almost a certainty that the talented midfielder will figure in Mauricio Pochettino's first-team plans in the new Premier League season after a successful campaign on loan at Griffin Park.

Like Harry Kane last season, the Europa League could prove the perfect avenue for Pritchard to prove his quality. The group stages in particular will provide the club with grounds for experimentation, which could see a number of untested youngsters feature. 

For a player who created 111 chances in the second tier last season, as well as completing 77% of his passes and 45% of his attempted take ons, Pritchard will no doubt relish the opportunity to cement a first-team place at White Hart Lane.
