Newcastle & Arsenal fans gatecrash Andros Townsend’s emotional Tottenham farewell on Twitter

Andros Townsend is getting his move away from Tottenham Hotspur, but is leaving with a heavy heart.

Reports this morning claim that Spurs have agreed a £12m fee with Newcastle United for the winger, who has spent 16 years at the White Hart Lane club, rising through their academy and into the first team.

His lack of playing time under Mauricio Pochettino this season – only 64 minutes in the Premier League – has forced him to look for a new club, and the England international is now Newcastle bound.

The 24-year-old, who is expected to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms on Tyneside tomorrow, took to Twitter to say an emotional goodbye to the club where he has spent his entire career.

Tottenham fans were generally very supportive of Townsend’s new venture…

But Newcastle supporters took the opportunity to suggest to Townsend that the grass was greener on the other side, while a couple of Arsenal fans could not help but take a couple of cheeky digs!
