After a lot of change this summer, one thing that remains is that Harry Winks is a Tottenham player.
Despite interest from both Aston Villa and Everton (Birmingham Mail), Harry Winks has stayed in London and is set to fight for his place.
The tidy 25-year-old midfielder has reportedly been handed a lifeline at Spurs having impressed Nuno Espirito Santo (The Sun).
For many Tottenham fans, this is clearly a good thing, especially seeing as the midfield man is a homegrown asset.
However, under Jose Mourinho, Winks struggled. The 2020/21 season saw his Premier League minutes fall to just over a third of what they were in the previous campaign (Transfermarkt).
It seems that under Nuno, Winks will now have more of a say this season and we saw what he can do last week as he impressed in a 3-0 win over Pacos de Ferreira.
Alasdair Gold of Football.London gave Winks an 8/10 in his player ratings for the game as he impressed alongside Giovani Lo Celso and Harry Kane in Europe.
Now it’s time for Winks to start applying his talents in the Premier League, should he get the chance.
It’s well documented that Winks is a boyhood Spurs fan and he’ll be desperate to add to his 176 appearances for the club that he’s racked up so far (Transfermarkt).
Things are looking up for Winks now, though. Despite late interest in Ruben Neves (The Express), Spurs failed to sign a new central midfielder for this season.
Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici secured the signing of Pape Matar Sarr (BBC), but as he returns to Metz on loan, Winks has this season to make himself a mainstay in the side before new competition arrives.
