Exciting winger is currently earning just £10k per week in north London.
Tottenham Hotspur are set to offer in-form midfield player Andros Townsend improved terms on his current contract at White Hart Lane after the Englishman’s man-of-the-match display for his country against Montenegro at Wembley Stadium on Friday night, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The England international was handed his debut by Three Lions head coach Roy Hodgson for the crucial World Cup Group H qualifying tie at the home of football, and the 22-year-old did not disappoint either, setting up the home side’s opening goal for Wayne Rooney, before then sealing the three points with a stunning strike himself from distance.
And as a result of that eye-catching performance, it is now understood that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is set to offer Townsend a raise in his current salary at White Hart Lane from just £10,000 per week to a whopping £2 million-per-year deal.
The winger has been in north London for his whole career to date, although prior to this campaign he had spent as much time out on loan as he had actually playing for Spurs.
However, the club now hope to be able to tie their star man down to a new long-term deal in the capital – Townsend agreed an initial five-year contract at the Lane two years ago – and so ward off any potential interest in the player.
