Spurs rejected bid from QPR for Townsend

QPR failed with a bid to sign Andros Townsend from Tottenham before Monday night’s deadline.

Rangers have wanted to buy the England international, 23, since he impressed during a spell on loan at Loftus Road the season before last.

Spurs had indicated that he was not for sale and duly rejected an offer during the final hours of the transfer window.

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp was able to bring in Brazilian midfielder Sandro from the north London club.

The Rangers boss was also tipped to launch a bid to sign Spurs’ Aaron Lennon but did not pursue the winger despite being told he was potentially available.

Townsend was the wide-man Redknapp and the QPR board wanted, but they were given short shrift by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy when an approach was made.
