West Brom close to deal for Tottenham's Alex Pritchard

01 February 2016 09:23

West Brom are close to sealing a deadline-day loan move for Tottenham's Alex Pritchard.

The midfielder is due for a medical at the Baggies on Monday ahead of completing a switch until the end of the season, Press Association Sport understands.

Burnley were keen to take the 22-year-old to Turf Moor but Albion have made a late move and are expected to tie up a deal.

Pritchard could make his Baggies debut in the Barclays Premier League visit of Swansea on Tuesday.

He has made just one appearance for Tottenham this season, in August, and has struggled with an ankle injury which has left him needing game time.

He has made just two substitute outings since rising through the ranks at White Hart Lane and made his debut on the final day of the 2013-14 season.

Pritchard scored 12 goals in 47 games on loan at Brentford last season and would help boost Albion's midfield after they lost James Morrison and Callum McManaman to injury.

Boss Tony Pulis has also signed QPR's Sandro on loan until the end of the campaign as the Baggies battle to hold on to Saido Berahino.

Newcastle made a £21million move on Sunday but Albion's position remains unchanged and the club do not want to sell the England Under-21 international.
