1 Mauricio Pochettino says Andros Townsend’s situation is ‘obvious’ as he conceded Tottenham are ready to sell the winger this month.Townsend has found himself out-of-favour this season and has not played for the club since clashing with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner in November.Newcastle are reportedly keen on signing the 24-year-old, while Southampton and Watford are also understood to be monitoring his situation.“It’s always about rumours, but it’s true that when some players are not much involved in games, players always want to play and try to find solutions,” said Pochettino.“And I think it’s obvious the situation of Andros.”Pochettino suggested Townsend would not be on his way out of White Hart Lane if the Premier League relaxed its rules around match day squads.The Argentine feels he should be able to put 14 players on the bench to keep his squad happy, rather than the seven currently allowed.”He said: “The rule in the Premier League is that you can only pick 18 players, and if we change the rule like in Italy where you can put all the players on the bench, maybe that would be better and help the manager in the future.“Some players don’t deserve to miss out, but it’s impossible because you can only pick 18.“Maybe it’s better you pick your starting XI but all the squad can sit on the bench. Then you can use every player that you have in the squad.” Andros Townsend
