Harry Winks has returned to full fitness ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League final against Liverpool, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder suffered a groin injury in early April and underwent minor surgery to give himself a chance of playing again before the end of the season.

His last appearance was against Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final, a 1-0 win at Spurs’ new stadium.

After being unable to play a part on the final day draw with Everton in the Premier League, there were fears Winks would not regain his fitness in time to feature in the final on June 1st.

But Sky Sports claims the 22-year-old is now fully fit having trained with the rest of his Tottenham teammates all week.

Winks’ availability will be a huge boost to Spurs, who miss his passing ability and drive in midfielder whenever he is sidelined.

It is likely Winks will start next to Moussa Sissoko in central midfield. However, his inclusion will mean there is only room for four attacking players.

Fernando Llorente and Erik Lamela will probably have to settle for a place on the bench, while five players – Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, Dele Alli, Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen – will be battle for the four attacking slots.
