Newcastle ace Andros Townsend has congratulated Dele Alli.

Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend has taken to Twitter to congratulate his former Tottenham team-mate Dele Alli for being named PFA Player of the Year.

Alli, 20, signed for Spurs from MK Dons back in January 2015, but spend the second half of last season back on loan with the Dons before joining up with Spurs last summer.

Long regarded as one of English football's brightest young prospects, Alli was seen as a promising signing for Spurs, but few could have expected him to have such a huge impact this season.

The playmaker has notched ten goals and 11 assists in his debut season for Spurs, becoming an England international ahead of Euro 2016 too in a quite remarkable campaign.

On Sunday, Alli's success was recognised with the PFA Young Player of the Year award, beating off the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley to win the award.

Alli took to Twitter after his win, thanking everybody who voted for him - and he then received a message of support from former Tottenham team-mate Andros Townsend, who left White Hart Lane to join Newcastle United during the January transfer window.

 

 

Townsend wasn't the only one, as Alli's partner in crime for club and country, Harry Kane, also took to Twitter to congratulated Alli, stating that his award was 'fully deserved'.
