Brentford co-director of football Rasmus Ankersen has revealed on the club’s official Twitter page that there will not be any move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Alex Pritchard in the summer transfer window

RA on Alex Pritchard "He will be too expensive, I don't think he will be an option."— Brentford FC (@BrentfordFC) 1 August 2016
Pritchard is a talented and promising attacking midfielder, but he could find it tough to feature in the Tottenham first team next season.
Pritchard knows the Championship well, having played for Brentford on loan from Tottenham during the 2014-15 season.
During his loan spell at Brentford, the former England Under-21 international scored 11 goals and created as many as 111 chances in 46 Championship appearances.
The attacking midfielder had a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 53%, and won five headers, 56 dribbles and 58 tackles.
