Alex Pritchard signs for Norwich:
It has been announced this morning that our 23 year old winger Alex Pritchard has joined championship side Norwich city on a four year contract for a fee believed to be as much as £8 million pounds. The academy product flourished for both our under 18’s and under 21’s in the past before having successful loans with both Swindon and Brentford as well as Peterborough and West Brom. An extremely talented youngster Pritchard was even rumoured to have been a target for Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid back in 2012. Pritchard who is known for his creativity and trickery is noted for being an exceptional free kick taker, having scored free kicks on numerous occasions throughout his career. Pritchard who made two appearances for the Lillywhites senior side side has had injury problems throughout his career with Spurs and that may well be one of the reasons that Spurs have decided to sell him to the south coast club. I find it sad news that Pritchard was never able to showcase his talents for our senior side and were it not for injuries Pritchard may well have been a key feature in Pochettino’s side. The winger who is from Orsett in Essex, has bags of talent and potential, and Norwich have managed to sign a fantastic player in Pritchard and I am sure that he will flourish for the canaries over the coming seasons, I wish Alex all the very best at his new club.
