Harry Winks could play again for Tottenham this season after recovering from his ankle injury, according to the London Evening Standard.
The 22-year-old, who broke into Mauricio Pochettino’s first team plans last season, has been struggling with a recurring ankle problem for around a year.
Following an impressive if sporadic breakthrough campaign, Winks emerged as a genuine contender to start ahead of Mousa Dembele in Spurs’ midfield earlier this term.
Impressive displays against Real Madrid in the Champions League earned him an England call-up, but Wink’s ankle has hindered his progress in recent months.
The midfielder was sent to Qatar to undergo rehabilitation earlier this month, and the club are now confident he won’t need surgery on his ankle.
As a result, the Evening Standard claims Winks is expected to return to first-team training in the near future and could feature for Tottenham before the end of the season.
However, it usually takes a long time for a player to be deemed match fit by Pochettino after a long injury lay-off.
Perhaps it would be better if Spurs are cautious with Winks in order to avoid further problems.
