Tottenham Hotspur: Harry Winks not in Antonio Conte’s plans

Tottenham Hotspur: Harry Winks not in Antonio Conte’s plans -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks is not a part of Antonio Conte’s long-term plans, according to a fresh report by the Daily Star.

The Lowdown: Winks’ limited playing time

Since he was promoted to the first team in 2016, the 26-year-old has amassed 198 appearances for the north London club.

However, since the arrival of Conte at Hotspur Way, the defensive midfielder has struggled to maintain a regular run of game-time. Out of a possible 19 Premier League appearances under the Italian, Winks has only featured 12 times, coming off the bench for the final few minutes in four of those.

Consequently, a number of rumours have arisen surrounding his potential exit from Tottenham.

The Latest: Transfer interest in Winks

According to the Daily Star, Conte does not see Winks in his long-term future at the Lilywhites. As a result, Southampton and Crystal Palace are now eyeing a move for the midfielder.

It is understood that Spurs will listen to sensible offers for the 26-year-old in the summer.

The Verdict: Won’t be getting game-time

With the upcoming return of young starlet Oliver Skipp, Winks’ place in the Tottenham team seems even less secure than it had been.

When combined with the arrival of Rodrigo Bentancur, the 10-cap England midfielder will need to look elsewhere if he is to secure regular first-team minutes.

Former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who hailed Winks as an “amazing player”, even grouped his style of play with the likes of Xavi and Andres Iniesta, so it will be a waste to see the former England international rot on Conte’s bench for another number of months.
