English football club Newcastle United has confirmed the signing of English midfielder Andros Townsend from league rivals Tottenham Hotspurs for a fee of 12 million pounds.

The confirmation that the 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a five-and-half-year contract came on Wednesday.

Townsend will in all probability make his debut against Everton next Wednesday and has taken the vacant number 25 shirt.

Townsend is the the third signing of the January transfer window for the club, following on from Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet.

Reportedly an initial bid of 10.5 million pounds was rejected by Tottenham but when the revised offer of 12 million was made Spurs accepted it and Townsend flew in here hours later.

Confirming the move, Townsend tweeted: “excited for my new adventure at @NUFC can’t wait to step out on the field at St James Park for the first time.”
