Andros Townsend's emotional tweet proves footballers have feelings too

So farewell, Andros Townsend.

The England winger is finally on his way from Tottenham, where he’s spent his entire career (give or take roughly 700 loan spells) after the club agreed a reported fee of about £12 million with Newcastle for his transfer.

And the moment is clearly getting to 24-year-old Townsend.

And it wasn’t just Townsend, without a game for the Tottenham first-team since October, who’s feeling the emotion of the moment.

Tottenham fans are sad to see him go. They were lining up to wish him luck in the north east.

Newcastle fans were delighted with their new signing. Townsend will follow Jonjo Shelvey through the door at St James’ Park.

The experts seem to think Newcastle are doing decent business in this window.

Plus there’s this to take into account.

So, it looks like a good investment all round.
