The race is on to sign Tottenham talent Alex Pritchard, with head coach Mauricio Pochettino telling a press conference he is not in his plans.

Pochettino was quoted by The Mail explaining why Pritchard was not on their pre-season tour, and several sides are keen on signing him.

The Mirror report Premier League side Swansea City are weighing up a bid for his services, with Norwich, Leeds and Newcastle interested in a loan move.

Bookies Bet Victor are running a market on Pritchard's future, and it is Newcastle United who are regarded as favourites for his signature.

Newcastle are priced at just 2/1, ahead of Swansea City at 3/1.

Middlesbrough follow at 4/1, with Leeds United and Wolves at 6/1.

At 10/1 or higher, are Aston Villa, Norwich City and former side Brentford - where he excelled on loan in 2014/15.

Pritchard netted 12 goals and provided seven assists in that campaign, showing he is very capable in the division, which is why he is so highly coveted.
