Spurs ready to sell midfielder in January transfer window but Man Utd interest has cooled


Tottenham are reportedly ready to let midfielder Harry Winks go in the January transfer window.

According to CaughtOffside, Winks is keen for more playing time and it seems that Spurs’ hierarchy would also be prepared to allow him a move away, though it remains to be seen where he might end up.

The report notes that Manchester United had previously shown an interest but that has now cooled, even if the club would not entirely rule out a move for Winks in the future.

Winks looked a promising young player when he first broke into the senior side at Tottenham, but he’s perhaps not progressed quite as much as many would’ve hoped, and he now finds himself out of favour under Nuno Espirito Santo.

The 25-year-old could surely feature more regularly for most other clubs in the Premier League, though it does seem a bit surprising that there’s still any interest from Man Utd, who have plenty of other options in the middle of the park as it is.

As good as Winks could be if he played more often and got a bit of confidence back, he doesn’t seem likely to be much of an upgrade on players like Fred and Scott McTominay.
