Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is "disappointed" with Alex Pritchard's loan spell at West Brom and will make a decision on the player's future at the end of the season. Pritchard, 22, suffered an ankle injury while representing England at last summer's Under-21 European Championships and was later forced to undergo surgery.
A loan move to the Hawthorns appeared the present the attacking midfielder with the chance to make up for lost time, but has made just three appearances as a sub since arriving at the club during the January transfer window.
"It's difficult now to be focused on him. He's been a little bit unlucky because he moved to West Bromwich and really doesn't have the opportunity to play too much," Pochettino was quoted as saying by Ham and High.
"I think he feels disappointed, we are very disappointed too, but we will speak in the next few weeks. We [will] feel his ideas and after we take some decisions, sure, in the next few weeks, after the season."
Due to injury and his struggles at West Brom, Pritchard has been limited to just 67 minutes of first-team football this season, last featuring in the 1-0 defeat to Norwich City on 19 March.
Baggies assistant manager Dave Kemp recently explained the club simply haven't been able to hand Pritchard the first-team role he desires. Kemp was quoted as saying by the Birmingham Mail: "He is a good footballer, no question about that. It is awkward when everybody else is playing poorly, it is not easy."
Prior to undergoing surgery, Pritchard signed a new four-year contract with Spurs, vowing to follow the likes of Harry Kane and Ryan Mason into the first-team.
