There is one transfer move Tottenham Hotspur should make this week, recalling Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Tottenham should bolster their squad by recalling Alex Pritchard from West Brom.

It has been a fantastic season for Tottenham Hotspur, with many players taking their careers to the next level with outstanding individual performances.

One player who the season did not pan out well for is a youngster tipped as their next breakthrough star, Alex Pritchard.

Pritchard was outstanding at Championship side Brentford last season, but his 2015/16 campaign was wrecked by an ankle injury suffered with England's under-21s last June, which Spurs decided in August required surgery.

He was sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion at the start of February, but the move has not turned out well.

He has made only two substitute appearances in the Premier League, and to be blunt, it has been a waste of time for everybody. Pritchard has missed time away from Spurs to impress his manager, and West Brom have not benefitted.

The time has come for Tottenham to make the move to recall Pritchard, with two games remaining of the Premier League season.

West Brom have nothing to play for, while Tottenham's chances to win the title are now over. Recent suspensions to Dele Alli, and potentially Mousa Dembele leave them short, and now could be a time to integrate Pritchard into the side, and learn more about him heading into next season.

There will be opportunities in post and pre season friendlies, but nothing which can compare to a Premier League game, and Spurs should consider bringing Pritchard back to be considered for selection for the final two matches, against Southampton and Newcastle.
