Tottenham Hotspur have sold midfielder Alex Pritchard to Championship side Norwich City for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old was widely expected to leave White Hart Lane this summer after Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said the youngster was not in his plans for the upcoming campaign.

It still comes as a blow to a player who never really had a chance to prove himself in the Tottenham first-team, injury robbing him of the opportunity to impress following a successful loan spell at Brentford in 2014.

That stint at the Bees saw Pritchard score 12 goals and provide seven assists in 47 matches and he was widely expected to make his breakthrough in North London the following season.

A serious injury shortly afterwards ended that chance and a failed loan move to West Bromwich Albion in January was not what Pritchard would have hoped for.

His talent is undeniable and after signing a four-year deal at Norwich he will be hoping to get his career back on track.
