Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks is set to hold talks with chairman Daniel Levy about his Spurs future, according to the Telegraph.

Winks was substituted after an hour as Jose Mourinho’s side secured top spot in their Europa League group with a 2-0 victory over Royal Antwerp on Thursday night.

The England international looked forlorn as he was replaced by Tanguy Ndombele, likely because he is struggling for minutes in the Premier League and is now seeing his Europa League game time reduced, too.

And with his place in the England squad for this summer’s European championships potentially under threat, it looks like Winks is ready to do something about his situation.

The Telegraph claims the 24-year-old will talk to Levy about a possible resolution in January, which suggests he could be willing to leave to play more regular first-team football elsewhere in the winter transfer window.

Winks was included in the most recent England squad but Gareth Southgate is surely unlikely to pick him if he barely plays for Tottenham between now and the end of the season.

That’s why a loan move would perhaps suit all parties, but a departure could depend on whether Mourinho thinks he needs Winks in reserve for the remainder of the campaign.



  1. I like players who come through the ranks but as a fifty year plus supporter of both spurs and England I have to worry about England if players are good enough to play for England but not good enough for their club teams surely players in winks position have to fight for places at their clubs first.

  2. Bottom line is Winks isn’t good enough for the Tottenham first team he’s a squad player nothing more. Like most nowadays he gets a few caps for his country and thinks he’s a world beater

  3. I don’t get why Winks is getting off his high horse about not playing.
    Spurs midfield of Hojberg, Ndombele and Sissoko has been outstanding.
    They work in harmony and know exactly what each other is doing, Jose has seen this and not wanted to change it, fair play and fair enough.
    When Winks has come on for any of them in games its creates a chink in the chain concerning midfield.
    Personally I don’t see Winks as a holding midfielder he hasn’t got the physical presence or assertiveness like Hojberg or Sissoko has.
    I know he’s home grown and come through the ranks of spurs and its been great to see him evolve.
    But Jose wants to win things with this team and he has found his perfect midfield to play then Winks has to work really hard to prove Jose otherwise.
    He had a chance against Antwerp the other night and struggled, so Jose rightfully subbed him.
    Jose aint there to make friends he’s there to win trophies.

  4. All the comments above are right and I agree with, but it’s a shame, as fans we want a team that can compete and win things, Tottenham fans who have suffered for years deserve it more than most, but it’s still a shame, erikson being linked recently to Arsenal highlites the real fact, that it’s a job, when we criticise Harry winks please let us rember he is a spurs fan and one of us. In a time where people are dying of this horrible desease loosing there jobs and homes, I can’t find it in me to feel sorry for players who aren’t in the team, but again it’s still a shame. He isn’t apart of our strongest eleven, and the players in front of him are foreign the fact is if English players are not good enough for there clubs, but good enough for England, it shows small expectations for the euros
