Andros Townsend, who has yet to make the Spurs squad this season, may take part in their Week 4 match with Everton according to Maurico Pochettino.
With news coming in tandem that Christian Eriksen has been ruled out of Week 4, Spurs may have an extra midfield option in Townsend if he looks sharp in training the next couple of days. Erik Lamela didn't seem to take advantage of Eriksen's absence in Week 3 and Townsend is certainly more dangerous out wide than a Moussa Dembele. Still, it sounds like it will be a matchday decision for Poch to even include Townsend in the squad, so he cannot be looked at as a fantasy option. Aug 27 - 10:55 AM

According to Tottenham's official Twitter feed, Andros Townsend is set to miss Spurs trip to Leicester City this weekend.

Townsend has yet to make the team sheet this season after having a shoulder issue hold him back heading into Week 1. Speculation this summer has talk of Townsend being on the outs of White Hart Lane. He doesn't appear to be in Maurico Pochettino's plans this season and therefore has no fantasy appeal at the moment. That could all change if he lands on the right club by the end of the summer window.

Andros Townsend is a doubt for week one after suffering a shoulder injury.

Townsend suffered the injury in a behind-closed-doors game but that may not really effect his value much. He's out of favor at Tottenham and probably wasn't going to start in week one regardless of his injury status. The injury could hurt his chances at moving to another team, but we don't know how likely that was in the first place. His former boss, Tim Sherwood, is interested in bringing him to Aston Villa, but we wouldn't touch him in fantasy until a move seems more likely.

Aston Villa are still chasing Tottenham winger Andros Townsend.

Townsend played under Tim Sherwood at Tottenham and the manager seems keen to bring him to Aston Villa despite a £15 million price tag. Townsend is also being pursued by Sunderland, Swansea, and Newcastle, so getting him might require a small bidding war. Townsend's fantasy value would be much higher at any of his suitors' clubs than it is at Tottenham as he's likely to get regular playing time at his new club. He will be an interesting fantasy player to follow this season.

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.

Andros Townsend's spectacular strike gave an experimental England line-up a creditable draw against Italy in Turin.

Saints' striker Graziano Pelle's first-half header gave Italy a deserved first half lead, but England were lifted by the introduction of several substitutes in the second half. Andros Townsend was one of them, and the winger capped a fine display with a rising 20-yard drive 11 minutes, while Ryan Mason made is debut and Kyle Walker came on at right-back. Harry Kane got his first international start and gave an energetic display upfront alongside Wayne Rooney as Roy Hogson's men left Turin with a 1-1 draw.

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend became the second England player within the last 24 hours to withdraw from the upcoming internationals against Slovenia and Scotland because of injury.

Townsend arrived at the England training camp on Monday and has failed to train with the main group following his enforced half-time substitution during Sundays’ Premier League defeat to Stoke at White Hart Lane because of an ankle problem. For many his inclusion came as a big surprise having failed to establish himself domestically this season – only 1 start & 154 minutes of play – but on the international stage Townsend has been a solid performer scoring on his last appearance for the Three Lions in October during the rout of San Marino. The Tottenham player will return to North London for further assessment although his ankle injury is only believed to be minor.

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.

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.
