Brentford sign Alex Pritchard on loan

Championship side Brentford have confirmed that Alex Pritchard will spend the 2014/15 season at Griffin Park on a season-long loan deal.

The promising English winger, 21, spent last season on loan at Brentford’s then League One rivals Swindon Town where he scored six goals in 35 league games.

Pritchard also netted in a Capital One Cup tie away at Queens Park Rangers where Swindon ran out 0-2 winners.

Brentford’s new signing has also earned three caps for the England Under 20 side, two of which came in the 2013 Under 20 World Cup but England failed to make it past the group stages.

Tottenham winger Pritchard has also signed a two year contract extension that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2016.

Pritchard made his Tottenham debut in the club’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa, coming on as an 83rd minute substitute.
