Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks has hinted at a potential January exit following his lack of minutes for the north London outfit this season, according to the Telegraph.
Since breaking into the team under Mauricio Pochettino during the 2016-17 campaign, the England man has been a regular, making than 150 appearances for the club.
However, following the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton this summer, the 24-year-old has been restricted to just three Premier League this starts season, and was left out of the matchday squads for the recent wins over Burnley and West Brom.
Winks hasn’t played in the Premier League since the draw with West Ham last month – with his three most recent appearances for Spurs all coming in the Europa League.
And Winks, who featured in England’s recent games against both Republic of Ireland and Belgium, reckons that he must be playing more regularly to force his way into Gareth Southgate’s 23-man Three Lions squad for next summer’s European Championships.
“My situation at Tottenham is difficult at the moment and it’s important that I keep fighting and working as hard as I can to stay in the squad and to stay in the team,” Winks said.
“Every time I get the opportunity for England, I love it. It’s a great place to play football here, it’s free and the lads get on really well, it’s a great place to come to.
“I want to be a part of that in the Euros and I want to be in the starting XI in the Euros as well. But, yes, it’s important that back at Tottenham I get the opportunities there and I stay in the team there as well.”
