Pritchard is a talented and promising attacking midfielder, but he could find it tough to feature in the Tottenham first team next season.

According to a recent report on West London Sport, Spurs want as much as £8 million in order to part company with the Englishman.

It was reported that Championship club Queens Park Rangers had made an approach for Pritchard, but it was turned down.
