Harry Winks eyeing Tottenham exit in January in search of playing time
Winks, a product of the Tottenham youth academy, has struggled for game time in the ongoing season.
Jose Mourinho has generally preferred to use new signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the middle of the park alongside the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso, meaning the Englishman has found opportunities hard to come by.
Winks has featured ten times in all competitions this term, scoring one goal in the process.
However, it is worth noting that the 24-year-old hasn’t started a single Premier League game since September. In fact, the Englishman was completely omitted from the matchday squad for the derby against Chelsea. In addition, he was an unused substitute against LASK in the Europa League this past Thursday.
The lack of game-time has become a cause for concern for Winks as it is putting his place in the England squad in jeopardy. The Three Lions manager, Gareth Southgate, has made it clear that a player must be playing regularly in order to be in contention for the Euros next summer. (h/t Mirror)

While the situation certainly isn’t favourable, Winks should just put his head down and work hard and wait for his chance. We’ve all seen the turnaround that Tanguy Ndombele has made under Jose. And given the cramped schedule, all players will get ample opportunities to prove their worth.
