Exclusive: Paul Stewart claims Winks isn’t good enough for to play in the Premier League - Tottenham Hotspur News

In an exclusive interview with Transfer Tavern, Paul Stewart, who made 169 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur, has claimed that Harry Winks is not good enough to play in the Premier League.

Winks first made his debut for Spurs in 2014 and has gone on to appear 170 times for his boyhood club in all competitions, including coming on as a substitute in the 4-0 win against Sheffield United on Sunday, and even started in their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool.

Is Winks good enough for Spurs?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

The 25-year old has struggled for regular game time this season making just seven league starts and was linked with a move away to Valencia in January, something Jose Mourinho was strongly against.

Speaking on why Winks is not Premier League quality and how there are many players just like him, Stewart told The Transfer Tavern:

I’ve got to be honest, I’ve been a bit of a critic of Harry because I think he’s neat and tidy and retains the ball but there are better players out there.

I hope he proves me wrong, but I don’t think he’s Premier League quality because he doesn’t offer enough in the modern-day game. I’ve seen other players like that in the past who flatter to deceive.”

Where did Mauricio Pochettino complete his playing career?

Winks has earned 10 caps for England since making his debut back in 2017, however, it appears unlikely he will be going to the Euros this summer with the likes of James Ward-Prowse and Jude Bellingham ahead of him in the pecking order.

The £50,000 per week midfielder appears to currently be fourth-choice central midfielder under temporary manager, Ryan Mason, so his future may depend heavily on who is appointed manager in the summer.
