Townsend to be rewarded with a new contract.
Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend was one of England’s best players in the 4-1 win over Montenegro on Friday and is to be rewarded with a new contract, reports the Mirror.
The 22-year-old scored and set up Wayne Rooney during the winger’s debut for the Three Lions and was one of the key reasons the nation triumphed.
Townsend currently earns less than £10,000-a-week at White Hart Lane, but after impressing for both England and Spurs in 2013/14, that deal is about to be significantly bumped up.
The Englishman’s contract will soar to £2m a year as Tottenham want to show the star how much they think he is part of their plans.
Despite there being a plethora of attacking midfield talent at the north London club, with expensive acquisitions such as Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela, Townsend has played a big part for Andre Villas-Boas’ side this term.
Although the midfielder signed a five-year deal with Spurs just two years ago, the starlet is some way off being one of the club’s top earners.
Townsend is almost certain to feature for England on Tuesday in their crucial World Cup qualifier against Poland, having started on Friday.
If the side beat the Polish then they guarantee their spot at next summer’s tournament in Brazil and the Tottenham man is certain to be part of Roy Hodgson’s squad.
Injury to Aaron Lennon has gifted Townsend a place under AVB, but with such good form the elder winger may struggle to now get back into the side.
