Exclusive: David Norris surprised Leeds snubbed Spurs’ Harry Winks loan offer -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

David Norris was shocked to discover Leeds United turned down the opportunity to secure Harry Winks on loan during the transfer window.

Winks has found his opportunities at Tottenham Hotspur restricted, with the central midfielder making just one substitute appearance in the Premier League this season.

It has been reported that Leeds opted against taking up Spurs’ offer of signing the England international on a season-long loan.

Would Winks have improved Leeds?

No

No

With the 25-year-old out of favour in north London, the current Premier League leaders were willing to offload Winks and Manchester United kept tabs on the situation before the new season got underway.

Winks also struggled to break into Spurs’ preferred starting line-up last season and made just nine top-flight starts.

His lack of involvement led to Southampton taking an interest before focusing their attentions elsewhere.

Former Leeds midfielder Norris believes Winks, who has made 110 Premier League appearances during his career, would have been an ideal addition to Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites squad.
