According to Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur are willing to let playmaker Alex Pritchard leave the club this summer, having suffered a lost season.

The midfielder, 23, has come up through the ranks at Spurs since a 2009 move from West Ham United, and is considered as another bright English talent at White Hart Lane.

Yet having spent the first half of last season injured and the second half on loan at West Bromwich Albion - where he played just 62 minutes of action - Pritchard appears to be stalling.

Now, it's claimed that Spurs are willing to let Pritchard leave for £8m, but if no buyers are willing to meet Daniel Levy's lofty asking price, we could see Pritchard loaned out again - and Glasgow could be an ideal place for him to play.

Rangers boss Mark Warburton has a long-standing relationship with Spurs, and took Pritchard on loan for the 2014/15 season at Brentford, where Pritchard thrived.

With 12 goals and seven assists in the Championship, Pritchard starred under Warburton, and the Gers boss even admitted back in August 2015 that he would 'love' an Ibrox reunion with the former England Under-21 international, even if he felt it was unrealistic at the time.

"I would love to take Alex Pritchard on loan," Warburton was quoted as saying by Inside Futbol. "But I think Alex Pritchard will be playing at a very high level," he added.

Now though, with Rangers back in the top flight of Scottish football and Spurs willing to part with Pritchard, it may be worth Warburton enquiring and asking whether he can land the midfielder on loan for a season, injecting quality into his Gers side in the process.

Rangers have added midfield talent already this summer, so playing Pritchard out on the left could work for Warburton, and the player himself would no doubt love to play under his former boss again having impressed so much under him at Brentford.

The Gers are never meeting the £8m asking price, and it may take other clubs pulling out to put Rangers in with a chance, but a loan deal is at least something Warburton should consider.
