Andros Darryl Townsend (born 16 July 1991) is an English professional footballer who plays as a winger for Premier League club Crystal Palace and the England national team.

A graduate of the Tottenham Hotspur academy and featuring in various England youth sides, Townsend was initially loaned out to several League One and then Championship sides alongside limited Tottenham appearances, before gaining his Premier League debut on 16 September 2012. After further limited appearances and then a half-season loan to Premier League side Queens Park Rangers, Townsend established himself as a Tottenham player for the 2013–14 and 2014–15 seasons. He subsequently fell out of favour at Tottenham, and following a short spell at Newcastle United in the 2015–16 season, he transferred to Crystal Palace in the summer of 2016.

In his senior international career, Townsend earned his first England cap on 11 October 2013, and has gone on to make eleven appearances, scoring three goals.

Early career[edit]

Townsend joined the Tottenham Hotspur academy at the age of eight.[3] In March 2009, he went on loan to Yeovil Town,[4] making his football league debut against Milton Keynes Dons alongside fellow Spurs academy player Jonathan Obika.[5] He made ten appearances and scored one goal for Yeovil as they avoided relegation.[6]

Club career[edit]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

Initial loans[edit]

Townsend entered the senior Tottenham side under manager Harry Redknapp. In August 2009, he went on a month's loan to League One side Leyton Orient, extended at the end of the month to the end of December, after which he returned to Tottenham.[7][8] In 26 appearances for Orient, Townsend scored twice, including a "great goal" in a 3–3 draw against Yeovil, passing three opposing players with a run that began in his own half, leading the opposition manager to lament that his players had not been more ruthless and taken him down with a professional foul.[9]

Having not yet made his Tottenham debut, on 14 January 2010, Townsend was again taken on loan by a League One side, Milton Keynes Dons, until the end of the season, although he was recalled after just two months due to injuries.[10] In nine games for the Dons he had scored twice. The season ended without Townsend having made his debut for Tottenham.

On 12 August 2010, Townsend signed another season-long loan, moving up to the Championship level with Ipswich Town, but this was terminated on 20 December, as Redknapp believed he had not been playing regularly enough.[11][12] He had played 16 times, scoring once.

Tottenham debut and further loans[edit]

On 9 January 2011, Townsend marked his senior Tottenham debut in a third round FA Cup tie at White Hart Lane against Charlton Athletic, scoring the first goal and being voted Man of the Match.[13] This proved to be his only appearance for Tottenham for the rest of the season, with two further loan spells occurring. He joined Championship side Watford on 20 January 2011 on loan until the end of the season, but this was terminated early, on 23 February, with Townsend having made three appearances.[14][15] On 7 March, Townsend again went on loan to a Championship side until the end of the season, this time Millwall.[16] By April he said he would be happy to stay at the club beyond his loan spell.[17] In 11 appearances he scored twice.

European football and further loans[edit]

For the first half of Tottenham's 2011–12 season, Townsend was a regular in their Europa League campaign, making six appearances in the competition, scoring his second goal for the club in their final game in the competition against Shamrock Rovers on 15 December 2011, curling in a shot from outside the box.[18] On 23 December, he signed a contract extension, making him a Tottenham player until the end of the 2016 season.[19]

With only one other appearance for Tottenham, in the League Cup, on 1 January 2012, Townsend joined Championship side Leeds United on loan until the end of the season, but with his agent claiming he was unhappy at the club, he switched the loan to their Championship rivals Birmingham City in February.[20][21][22] At Leeds, he made seven appearances, including a Man of the Match performance on his debut, and scored one goal.[23][24] At Birmingham, he made 16 league appearances, including in their second leg tie in the unsuccessful Championship promotion playoff against Blackpool.

Premier League debut[edit]

Townsend remained with Tottenham for the first half of their 2012–13 season, with the club now under a new manager, André Villas-Boas, who replaced Redknapp in the summer. He made his Premier League debut with a late substitution appearance on 16 September. Although appearing a further four times in the Premier League, these were all still late substitute appearances. Outside the league he made a further five appearances, once in the League Cup and FA Cup respectively, and three times in the Europa League. He scored his third Tottenham goal in the League Cup, a fine individual effort in a 3–0 victory against Carlisle United in the third round.[25]

Queens Park Rangers (loan)[edit]

On 31 January 2013, Townsend followed Redknapp to Premier League club Queens Park Rangers on a loan deal until the end of the season.[26] He made twelve appearances for the club, including a Man of the Match performance on his debut, scoring two goals in March, a dipping volley from outside the penalty area in a 3–1 win at home to Sunderland, and an equalising deflection in a 3–2 away loss to Aston Villa.[27][28][29] QPR were ultimately relegated, and Townsend returned to his parent club.

Established in the first team[edit]

Now back at Tottenham, Townsend started the second Premier League game of their 2013–14 season, and went on to make a total of 33 appearances, including 25 in the league. He scored twice, in a 5–0 away victory over Dinamo Tbilisi in the Europa League (his first game of the season), and his first in the Premier League in a 2–0 victory away to Aston Villa on 20 October 2013.[30][31] In the middle of the season, Townsend came under the management of his third Tottenham boss, after Villas Boas was replaced by Tim Sherwood.

With Sherwood's contract terminated at the end of the season, Townsend started the club's 2014–15 season under new manager Mauricio Pochettino. He made a total of 35 appearances, scoring 5 goals, but was reduced to just 17 appearances in the league, having been unable to hold down a starting place until the second half of the season.[32]

Out of favour[edit]

On 4 November 2015, having not started a league game of the 2015–16 season, Townsend was dropped from the squad following a touchline argument with the club's fitness coach.[33] Having apologised, Pochettino allowed Townsend to return to the squad by 17 November, and insisted the matter was over and he was now available for selection.[34] He never made a first team appearance for Tottenham following the incident, being an unused substitute three times, the last time on 10 December.[35]

Newcastle United[edit]

On 26 January 2016, having still not started a league game, Tottenham agreed a transfer fee with Newcastle United for Townsend, reportedly £12 million.[36] Before the fee had been announced, Townsend had already tweeted a goodbye message, and stated "As soon as I knew of Newcastle's interest they were the only club I wanted to join...Two of the best positions you can play in football are centre-forward and left wing at Newcastle. I've got the chance. I could never turn that down. I can't wait to play my first game at St James' Park".[37] The transfer was confirmed the following day, a five-and-a-half-year contract but with the club declining to disclose the fee. Townsend was given the squad number 25. On signing, his new manager, Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren, said of Townsend that he is a "winger with an old-fashioned style. He can play on the right or the left, is two-footed, quick, very direct and loves taking on defenders and crossing the ball."[38] According to Sky Sports, the transfer had been under negotiation for a week and Newcastle had initially wanted Townsend on loan, and then had a transfer offer of £10.5m rejected.[35] Despite his debut being marked by an isolated display in a disappointing team performance in an away defeat, at the next match, his home debut, he was given a standing ovation after a Man of the Match performance which saw Newcastle climb out of the relegation places.[39][40] His first goal for the club came in his third game, a shot from just outside the area, but it was just a 90th minute consolation goal in a 5–1 away defeat to Chelsea.[41]

Crystal Palace[edit]

On 1 July 2016, Townsend joined Premier League club Crystal Palace on a five-year contract from Newcastle following their relegation to the Championship.[42] Palace triggered his £13 million release clause just six months after he joined from Tottenham.[43] He was originally assigned the number 17 shirt for his first season with Palace, however after Bolasie left for Everton, it was announced that Townsend had been re-assigned the vacant number 10 shirt previously worn by Bolasie.[44]

Role within the loan system[edit]

Having had nine loan spells, Townsend's career path to regular first team football for Tottenham is often discussed in the context of a wider debate in English football about the best way to develop young talent, contrasting the loan route with Premier League players being developed in Under-21 leagues, or being brought to the Premier League level via transfers from lower league clubs. According to his father, the loan spells were the making of his son's career, while Tottenham's former Director of Football Damien Comolli who was dismissed in October 2008 believes Townsend succeeded in spite of the way Tottenham handled him.[45][46]

International career[edit]

Youth levels[edit]

Townsend represented England at under-16, under-17 and under-19 level. He played three times for the under-16s between 2006 and 2007, making his debut in a 1–1 draw away with Wales on 20 October 2006 and his last appearance in a 2–0 away loss to Germany in April 2007.[47] He scored twice on his under-17 debut, in a 6–1 win over Northern Ireland in August 2007,[48] and went on to make six appearances, the last in a 0–0 draw with Portugal on 5 February 2008.[47]

Townsend received his first call up to the England under-21 team in October 2012 for the Euro 2013 play-off matches against Serbia.[49] He made his debut in the first leg as a 65th-minute substitute for Liverpool's Raheem Sterling.[50]

In May 2013, Townsend was charged by The Football Association over alleged breaches of its rules on betting. He subsequently voluntarily withdrew from England's squad for the upcoming European Under-21 Championship finals.[51] He later admitted to charges under the FA's rules for breaching football betting regulations. After a personal hearing, he was fined £18,000 and suspended for four months backdated to 23 May 2013, with three months suspended until 1 July 2016.[51]

Senior team[edit]

As of the end of 2015, Townsend has earned 10 senior England caps (two FIFA World Cup qualifiers, three UEFA European Championship qualifiers, and five friendlies) and scored three goals. He has only played in one England game for a full 90 minutes, the rest being substitutions (six on, three off).[52]

His first call-up to the senior England squad came in September 2013, for the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.[53] He made his senior debut in the starting eleven against Montenegro in the World Cup qualifier on 11 October, aged 22 years 87 days. He was involved in England's first goal in a 4–1 win, scored the third with a "low swerving finish" from outside the penalty area after 78 minutes, two minutes before being substituted, and was named man of the match.[54] He earned a second cap in the World Cup qualifier against Poland, a playing almost all of the 2–0 home win, on 15 October 2013.[55] Two further appearances came in the November friendlies, a 57' sub appearance in the 2–0 home win over Chile, and a full game in the 1–0 loss to Germany.[56][57] His fifth cap came as a very late substitute in a March 2014 friendly, a 1–0 home win over Denmark.[58]

A second England goal came in the Euro 2016 qualification campaign in a 5–0 win over San Marino on 9 October 2014, as he came on for the final third of the game.[59] His next appearance marked his third England goal; on 31 March 2015 he scored the equaliser in the 79th minute against Italy, having come on as a 70' sub in a friendly match which ended 1–1.[60] The 20 yard strike was described as a "sweet right-foot drive into the bottom corner"; Townsend took to Twitter immediately after the game to respond to Paul Merson after he had said Townsend's club form didn't justify him being anywhere near the England team.[61] His eighth and ninth caps came in June 2015, first as a 66' sub in the 0–0 away draw to Ireland in a friendly on 7 June 2015, before playing for the first two thirds of a 3–2 away win over Slovenia on 14 June 2015 in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.[62][63] His tenth cap was in another Euro 2016 qualifier, this time as a 73' sub in the 3–0 away win over Lithuania on 12 October.[64]

Personal life[edit]

Townsend was born in Leytonstone, London.[3] He is of paternal Jamaican and maternal Greek Cypriot descent.[65] He was brought up in Chingford, and is a lifelong Tottenham fan.[3] He attended Rush Croft Sports College.[6]

When he was 10 years old, his older brother Kurtis was killed in a car crash at the age of 18.[3]

Townsend was filmed singing the song Stand By Me by Ben E. King with the rest of the Tottenham youth players in the dressing room, which became a popular internet video.[66]
