The 23 year old has struggled to retain a foothold in Mauricio Pochettino’s first team set-up with the likes of Nacer Chadli, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela ahead of him in the Argentine manager’s pecking order.
However despite starting just three Premier League fixtures this season Townsend, who has been at the club since the age of nine, is keen to fight for his place, stating;
“The club want me here and I want to be here, so that’s all I can say at the minute,” Townsend told Standard Sport. “I’m a Spurs boy. I’ve been at the club since the age of eight so as long as I’m in the team, as I have been over the last few weeks, I’m not looking to go anywhere.
“Unless the club come and tell me they want me to leave then I won’t be going anywhere. I’m fighting for my shirt. The last six or seven windows have been the same, with my name linked with other clubs.
“Earlier in the season I was limited only to cup games, Capital One and Europa League but now hopefully I’ve broken back into that Premier League squad, hopefully I can put a run of games together and all these rumours that come about every transfer window can go away.”
