According to inside sources from Eurosport, it is ‘understood’ Spurs midfielder Harry Winks ‘will be told’ to find a new club in January amid claims he ‘fancies a move abroad’ – with Daniel Levy now prepared to lose a player who ‘makes everyone tick‘ as this behind the scenes update emerges.
Winks, who has been largely snubbed by manager Jose Mourinho this season, with the Spurs boss favouring a colossal defensive midfield duo of Moussa Sissoko and new signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, will now be told he can move on as per this inside claim from Eurosport.
Winks on the way out
Indeed, according to club sources from correspondent Dean Jones, Winks will be allowed to move on in January as he aims to work his way back into Gareth Southgate’s plans ahead of the postponed Euro 2020 next year.
Apparently, Winks being told he can find a new club will ‘suit’ the player with his place in the England squad currently in jeopardy – and chairman Levy will now grant him the freedom to hold talks with potential suitors.
Transfer Tavern take
Described as a midfield dynamo who ‘makes everyone tick‘ by Jamie Redknapp, while Winks isn’t the defensive titan Mourinho wants to place in front of a back four, his technical ability is arguably second to none in the Spurs squad.
Averaging a 90% pass accuracy over the course of last campaign, where he started 26 Premier League matches (WhoScored), it looks like Winks’ time at Spurs is now certain to come to an end.
Whilst Hojbjerg and Sissoko are currently Spurs’ ideal partnership, Tottenham seem highly likely to lose a capable back-up in Winks after this inside claim.
