Puzzled Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Pritchard-West Brom, suggest hidden agenda

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

The Spurs faithful have been discussing the 22-year-old's loan move to West Brom. Is there a hidden agenda...?

It was midway through Sunday afternoon that the news really broke that Tottenham Hotspur could send Alex Pritchard on loan to West Brom.

A temporary move to the Championship had been discussed and several clubs mooted.

In the end, however, the north London side opted to send Pritchard to the Baggies. Which has left plenty of Tottenham fans puzzled...

Indeed, West Brom's relationship with Spurs hasn't exactly been the happiest of late and supporters are unhappy Pritchard has been allowed to leave so easily when there was so much objection to Tottenham's interest in Saido Berahino.

Unless, of course, the 22-year-old's loan is just a sweetener for the White Hart Lane outfit to make a late move for Berahino...

That's how hopeful Tottenham fans have viewed the move on Twitter. The benefits: Pritchard could get game time and Premier League experience. The negatives: West Brom boss Tony Pulis may not actually play him - nor allow him to develop with any time on the ball.

Here's how supporters reacted to the loan move on social media!
