Sunderland lead the way in the chase to snap up Tottenham and England winger Andros Townsend…
Sunderland are on the verge of making a move for Andros Townsend as they start the rebuild for next season. Manager Dick Advocaat has said they need six quality signings and 23-year-old Townsend would solve their left-sided problem – a position variously filled by Fabio Borini, Will Buckley, Conor Wickham and Jemain Defoe last season. And also provide an alternative to Adam Johnson whose legal case is ongoing. Despite starting just 22 matches for Spurs since joining the club as a trainee and spending loan spells at no less than nine clubs, Townsend has been a regular for England in the last couple of years. He is equally at home on either flank, has pace, a goal threat and will relish the chance to link up with former Tottenham team mate Defoe. Sunderland are likely to face competition though from Aston Villa, Swansea and local rivals Newcastle. Jun 22 - 5:12 AM
