Alex Pritchard is on the verge of a loan move to Burnley
Berahino bait: Pritchard is set to complete a loan move to West Brom

By London correspondent Tony Hughes

Tottenham are ready to sell Alex Pritchard this summer months after he signed a new deal, according to a report.

The academy graduate has endured a frustrating season in which he was sidelined for three months and had a fruitless loan spell at West Brom.

Sky Sports claim Spurs are prepared to offload Pritchard in the forthcoming transfer window and have set his asking price at £8million.

It is said that two Premier League clubs have shown interest in the attacking midfielder, while a number of Championship clubs are also keeping close tabs on him.

Pritchard, who signed a four-year contract last August, is highly regarded by Mauricio Pochettino and his staff but has been unable to break in the first-team set-up at White Hart Lane.

The 23-year-old, who joined the Spurs youth team aged 16 from the West Ham academy, has made just two senior appearances for the club.

It has been a frustrating season for Pritchard, who spent three months on the sidelines before Christmas with an ankle injury and then had a loan spell at West Brom in which he played just 66 minutes of Premier League football.

However, Pritchard demonstrated the depth of his talent with a highly successful loan spell at Brentford last season, where he scored 12 goals and supplied seven assists in 47 appearances for the Championship club.

In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are keeping close tabs on a highly rated Holland central midfielder.
