Southampton have had a bid for Andros Townsend rejected by Tottenham, according to Sky sources.
Sky Sports are reporting that Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has identified Townsend as a potential replacement for his England colleague Adam Lallana, but Spurs have dismissed an initial offer of £10million. Townsend made his first appearance for Spurs since a serious injury last season, coming off the bench for the final 20 minutes at West Ham on Saturday, and he impressed with some direct running and powerful shots at goal. If Southampton want to sign the winger they will need to up their offer, but Sky sources are suggesting Townsend would want to stay at White Hart Lane even if a bid was accepted by his current club.

Tottenham and England winger Andros Townsend will miss the World Cup after being ruled out for up to 10 weeks with an ankle injury.

Townsend struggled for form since bursting on to the scene last October, and has fallen out of favour with Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood, not starting a Premier League game since March. With the emergence of Raheem Sterling and the near certainty of utility man James Milner making the England squad, the winger was perhaps unlikely to be the plane to Brazil anyway. He must now focus on his recovery to ensure he is ready to have a more consistent season in 2014/15.

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend is having further assessment on an ankle injury which is threatening his hopes of playing in this summer's World Cup.

All the reports link Townsend's injury to England's World Cup squad, but in truth the winger was already a long way from taking his place on the plane to Brazil. Since his impressive performances during qualifying back in October, Townsend has struggled for form and has fallen out of favour with Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood, not starting a Premier League game since March, with Aaron Lennon preferred for the right-sided midfield role. With the emergence of Raheem Sterling and the near certainty of James Milner making the squad, Townsend may have to accept this tournament has come too soon, regardless of whether he recovers in time.

Andros Townsend was a consistent pain in Arsenal's side as Spurs dominated play for most of the match in a losing effort at home against their biggest rivals.

Spurs will be disappointed with the loss given the extent to which they dominated possession and created chances. It seemed that much of the second half consisted of Spurs playing attacking drills as Arsenal practiced their defending. It isn't often that Arsenal lose the possession battle at all, let alone 59% to 41% and even less often that they end up the match playing six defenders at once with Vermaelen and Monreal joining the starting four. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of Townsend, Adebayor and company Spurs couldn't break through and settled for a loss.

Tottenham's Andros Townsend could make his first start for eight weeks after returning from a hamstring injury as a substitute against Everton on Sunday.

Townsend is being tipped to start in place of either Aaron Lennon or Christian Eriksen, who have both been quiet over the past two games. Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches and Sandro remain sidelined due to injury.

Tim Sherwood reports that Andros Townsend and Mousa Dembele are back in contention for Sunday's Premier League encounter against Everton at White Hart Lane.

Townsend has been missing since suffering a hamstring injury against West Ham on December 15, but the winger may have to settle for a place on the bench against Everton with Aaron Lennon and Christian Eriksen doing a good job in his absence. Sherwood also revealed Mousa Dembele would be available after missing Hull with an ankle injury and the midfielder would be expected to return to the starting XI.

Tottenham's Andros Townsend hopes to come back better than ever after recovering from injury in time to face Manchester City.

Manager Tim Sherwood will be pleased to have another wing option, but Townsend could find it difficult to displace Aaron Lennon or Christian Eriksen who have both been playing well and have helped Spurs to five wins and a draw in the six weeks. He is likely to have to settle for a place on the bench when Manchester City come to visit White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend could return to first-team action this weekend after a month out with injury.

Manager Tim Sherwood will be pleased to have another wing option, but Townsend could find it difficult to displace Aaron Lennon or Christian Eriksen who have both been playing well and have helped Spurs to four wins and a draw in the past month. He is likely to have to settle for a place on the bench at Swansea this weekend.

Tottenham's Jermain Defoe, Lewis Holtby, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andros Townsend are back in the frame to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.

It's good news that Spurs have a few more option, but other than Andros Townsend it seems unlikely any of the four men returning will find it easy to get in to the first team, especially Defoe, as he is set to leave the club next month. Younes Kaboul and Sandro hamstring have also returned to training, but are not ready to return to action. Paulinho and Jan Vertonghen remain out. Roberto Soldado was not mentioned in Tim Sherwood's press conference so we remain unclear whether he's recovered from the calf injury that forced him off against Arsenal in the FA Cup.

Andros Townsend and Jermain Defoe returned to training on Friday morning after spells out with injury.

Townsend has missed the last four matches, and Spurs have not lost, so he may find it difficult to force his way back in to the team with Aaron Lennon and Christian Eriksen impressing on the flanks. Defoe has missed three games which has allowed Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor to form a promising partnership, and there have been rumours that the striker is set to leave the club for Toronto during the January transfer window.

Spurs winger, Andros Townsend, pulled his hamstring today against West Ham United, and is expected to miss several weeks.

Townsend was deployed on the left in Tim Sherwood's first team selection. However, he injured his hamstring, turning a bad day for Spurs - they lost 2-1 - worse. He was replaced by Nacer Chadli, with Erik Lamela not even on the bench.

Andros Townsend insists that he is not even thinking about the World Cup yet, despite a brilliant start to his England career.

Townsend was one of the few bright points to come out of the 1-0 loss to Germany on Tuesday as the fine start to his international career continued. It was noticeable that the winger was more reserved in his "shoot from everywhere" tactic which has crept in to his game for Spurs in recent matches, tending to pass or cross for a team mate instead. Townsend should start against Manchester City in Week 12 and it would be beneficial to Roberto Soldado if this change of approach continued, to provide the striker with a few more chances of his own.

Goals from Andros Townsend and Roberto Soldado helped Tottenham to beat Aston Villa to move fifth in the league.

Townsend's opening goal had a hint of luck about it - it was an inswinging cross which deceived everyone including Brad Guzan - but his all round play was outstanding as he ran Villa's left-back Antonio Luna ragged throughout the second half. The Tottenham (and England) winger created a host of chances for team-mates and was named man of the match by Gary Neville on Sky Sports to end a phenomenal 10 days for the young man. For now it appears Erik Lamela will remain firmly rooted to the bench.

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend has signed a new four-year contract with the club.

It's been a whirlwind week for Townsend, who starred in England'a two World Cup qualifiers and has been rewarded for his generally strong performances this season with a new deal. Reports suggest the winger has had his wages doubled, so one imagines he'll be in a fairly upbeat move ahead of Tottenham's Sunday clash with Aston Villa, where he should start ahead of Erik Lamela and the fit-again Aaron Lennon.

Andros Townsend marked his full debut with a spectacular goal as England secured a vital 4-1 win against Montenegro in World Cup qualifying at Wembley on Friday night.

Townsend's form has been good enough to keep Erik Lamela out of the Tottenham team this season and he raised his profile further with a man-of-the-match display for England last night. The winger has struggled with his final decision at times - often shooting when a pass is the better option - but there's no doubting his pace, ability to take on a defender and excellent crossing. He remains a solid fantasy option whenever team news suggests he'll start in the Premier League.
