Andros Townsend

HARRY REDKNAPP is planning to bring Tottenham duo Andros Townsend and Michael Dawson to QPR next season acording to The Daily Express.

England winger Andros Townsend suffered a stop-start season at Spurs who are set to have a clear out of players when ex-Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino assumes control of their squad after being appointed on Tuesday.

Former Saints boss Redknapp wants to try to take Townsend on a season long loan if he can, with the England winger rated at about £8million by Spurs.

But both Everton and Newcastle are also this summer interested in buying the 22 year old, who had a successful loan spell at QPR in 2013.

Dawson is a player QPR have been chasing for more than a year and a £9m move for the centre-back collapsed in August 2012 after the clubs had agreed terms, when the player rejected the move.

 

MAURICIO POCHETTINO will NOT be sacked if Spurs fail to earn a Champions League spot next season, according to The Sun.
But the ex-Saints boss was warned the team must show signs of improvement and the season must not turn into another disaster.

I wouldn't mind seeing Townsend in a Saints shirt, the lad has potential.

What is most important for me is that NONE of the Saints players are sold to the Spuds, except Osvaldo, they can have him for £30m.
