West Ham boss Allardyce: Townsend England success thanks to loan system

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce feels the England success of Tottenham winger Andros Townsend justifies the loan system. Allardyce wrote in the London Evening Standard: "I don't want to bang on about it again but Andros's emergence is a vindication of the loan system.

"I believe there was a chance Spurs could even have sold him - perhaps to Millwall a couple of years ago - but I don't think that would have stopped him because playing regularly in the Championship would have brought him on anyway."
