Tottenham: Harry Winks not guaranteed Spurs exit

Tottenham: Harry Winks not guaranteed Spurs exit -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks may not leave the club before the start of the Premier League season, according to reliable journalist Ben Jacobs.

The Lowdown: Winks’ season

The 26-year-old made eight starts under manager Antonio Conte last season, coming off the bench on a further nine occasions.

Back in October last year, it was reported that the former England international had his eyes on a January loan move, with the idea of revitalising his career.

However, the Italian boss decided that Winks would remain with the club for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign, having proven himself to be a ‘reliable player’.

The Latest: Jacobs’ news

Jacobs has now shared the latest news surrounding Winks’ future at Hotspur Way.

Taking to the LastWordOnSpurs (via The Spurs Web), the CBS journalist claimed there is nothing imminent to suggest that the midfielder will leave the club before the start of the new Premier League season, which kicks off this Saturday as the Lilywhites face Southampton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Winks’ contract runs until the summer of 2024.

The Verdict: Needs a move away

When looking at the 26-year-old’s underlying stats, it is clear to see the midfielder still has the potential to play at the highest level.

Compared with positional peers across Europe over the past year, Winks ranks in the 98th percentile for progressive passes, in the 88th percentile for passes attempted and in the 86th percentile for expected assists (via FBRef).

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Despite this, the Englishman will have fallen down Conte’s pecking order even further this summer following the arrival of Yves Bissouma at Hotspur Way.

Therefore, if Winks wants to get himself anywhere near the England squad again, it is imperative that he seeks a move elsewhere in search of regular playing time.
