Tottenham decide to let Alex Pritchard leave on loan

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

HITC Sport understands Middlesbrough, Burnley and Brighton have all agreed terms.

Tottenham Hotspur have agreed to let midfielder Alex Pritchard move on loan back to the Championship for the rest of the season, HITC Sport understands.

Maurcio Pochettino is a huge fan of the England Under-21 ace, who has missed most of this season with an ankle injury - and he has told him that he would be happy to have him back in his squad, now he is back to full fitness.

He impressed hugely during a season-long stay at Brentford, but Pochettino wanted him to join a Premier League club - if he was allowed out again, as he believed that would help him progress further.

But although there was interest from the likes of Norwich and Swansea - both the player and Spurs have decided that first-team football was more important and that is much more likely in the Championship.

Now HITC Sport understands that Middlesbrough, Burnley and Brighton have all agreed terms with Spurs - and the decision will be left to the player.
