Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has bid Andros Townsend a fond farewell as rumours persist that the Tottenham Hotspur youngster is set to team up with Birmingham City at St Andrew’s.
The promising young winger has cut short his stay at Elland Road where he had been on loan since New Year’s Day.
Townsend played six times for Leeds and scored his first goal for the club against Doncaster Rovers at the weekend.
Warnock confirmed that the 20-year old has decided to leave, stating: “I’ve lost Townsend. His agent told me he didn’t like it here, he wasn’t happy, and he hadn’t settled. I’ve heard that Birmingham want to sign him, I don’t know if that’s got anything to do with it.
“I’m disappointed because we’ve lost a player, but I don’t want people who don’t want to be here.
“So good riddance if that’s what he wants to do.”
Townsend has represented England at Under-16, U17 and U19 level, with previous loan spells at Yeovil, Orient, MK Dons, Ipswich, Watford and Millwall.
