Tottenham Hotspur morning news: The cost of Pochettino's move to Spurs, Townsend drops England hint

Pochettino

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino is being linked with the vacant Tottenham manager’s role in several places.

The Southampton boss has impressed since he came into English football, developing a number of Saints stars into top quality performers.

Tim Sherwood was sacked as Tottenham boss after the club exercised a break clause in his contract.

If Pochettino wants the job then the Telegraph has reported he’ll literally have to pay for the privilege.

Based on his current contract with Southampton, Pochettino would have to pay £2 million personally for breaking his contract early.

The clause was inserted into his deal by former executive chairman Nicola Cortese.

Andros Townsend has hinted that he’ll go straight back into the England setup when fully fit.

The winger picked up an ankle problem last season, which rules him out of the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

“Roy gave me a call and said I've got time on my side and he is looking forward to welcoming me back into the fold when I'm fit. I was down and to hear that cheered me up a bit,” Townsend told the press.
