Harry Winks open to Spain or Italy move in search of playing time
The 24-year-old Tottenham academy product has been a regular in the first-team ever since he broke into the first-team a few years ago. However, he has found game-time hard to come by under Jose Mourinho in the ongoing season.
Winks has largely been relegated to appearances in the UEFA Europa League and hasn’t featured in a Premier League game since mid-October. The midfielder aired his concerns over the lack of game time not very long ago, indicating that it might cost him a place in the England squad for the Euros next summer. (h/t Daily Mail)
“Definitely, my situation at Tottenham is difficult at the moment. 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.”
Now, it is being claimed that in order to ensure that his chances for the summer tournament aren’t scuppered, Winks is open to leaving Tottenham Hotspur in January and would consider a move abroad, amid interest from Italy and Spain. (h/t The Sun)
