Andros Townsend has been linked with a move away from Tottenham in recent weeks.
Tottenham outcast Andros Townsend got the chance to play again on Monday - although it may not have been what he had in mind.
The England international featured for the under-21 side against Middlesbrough, a 2-1 in, with his appearance considered a demotion from first team duties.
Townsend's departure from Spurs, whether loan or permanent, appears necessary if he is to earn a place at Euro 2016.
Yet he is not trying to speed it along and kick up a fuss.
Fans had claimed yesterday via social media that they had spotted Townsend did not have the fact he is a Tottenham player listed in his Twitter profile, and suggested this meant he had removed it.
It looks like @andros_townsend's time at Spurs is up after he has deleted everything on his Twitter account to do with Spurs.— TheHotspurInsider (@HotspurInsider) November 30, 2015
Andros Townsend has now removed all affiliation with #THFC from his personal Twitter account. Would assume he will be first out in January.— Ricky Sacks (@RickSpur) November 30, 2015
Wayne Rooney deleted 'Manchester United player' from his own profile during his dispute with the club in 2013, The Telegraph reported at the time.
Townsend saw the chatter, and responded to deny that he had done so - explaining that the picture of him in an England shirt has been his picture for several months.
Errrrrm? I can't remember ever having a Twitter bio and That pic has been up since March! Nice detective work tho https://t.co/Qexy9sJvoj— andros townsend (@andros_townsend) November 30, 2015
Townsend may well realise he needs to move on from the club, but his response shows that he cares about how he is regarded by fans, and does not want to aggravate his situation further.
