Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend has expressed his intention to demonstrate his "ability on a consistent basis" at White Hart Lane next season despite reports claiming Mauricio Pochettino is considering to part ways with him.
Having being linked with a move away from the north London club during the January transfer window, the Mirror recently claimed the Argentine boss wanted sell him and Aaron Lennon to make way for West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino.
The England international had a impressive 2013-14 campaign under both Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood, while earning a regular spot in Roy Hodgson's England squad.
However, after missing the 2014 World Cup in Brazil due to injury, Townsend struggled to replicate his form in Pochettino's first season at White Hart Lane.
With Christian Eriksen, Nacer Chadli and Erik Lamela ahead of him in the manager's pecking order for the attacking flanks, the 23-year-old only started 10 Premier League games in the whole campaign.
But speaking with the club's official website ahead of next season, Townsend has expressed his confidence on overcoming the situation and establishing himself in Pochettino's first team.
Asked about his hopes for next season, he said: "To be as fit as possible and to show my ability on a consistent basis while trying to nail down a place in the first team.
"I'm looking for consistency on personal level and if we can do it as a team as well, because we showed we can do it in certain games last season, who knows where that can take us?
And despite Townsend seeing his playing time limited, he believes last season was positive for the team and could serve to build on a better next campaign.
He said: "I think 2014-15 was a positive season and hopefully a springboard for the new campaign. We had a new head coach, a new philosophy and a new team, as such. We're a young side with players coming up from the academy and three or four of those players have come into the squad and been regular starters like Nabil Bentaleb, Harry Kane and Ryan Mason.
"We've a good core of players who helped us finish fifth and reach the Capital One Cup final, so that amounts to a positive season and it's one we'll look to build on next time."
