Report: Tottenham’s £40m valuation discouraged PL rivals from signing midfield star

Tottenham priced out Harry Winks of a move to Aston Villa and Everton

According to The Times, it has been revealed that Tottenham priced Harry Winks out of a move to Aston Villa and Everton. Spurs were open to a sale but their valuation of £40million made sure neither of the above two sides went after him.

Nuno Espirito Santo made some changes to his lineup on Saturday and perhaps the most perplexing one was playing with three holding midfielders. Harry Winks joined the duo of Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in a three-man midfield but it turned out to be a huge dud. None of the players could provide support to the forwards as Spurs looked toothless.

Harry Winks drew a lot of flak for his tepid passing display that was mostly sideways and lacked any incision. He was often coming second to Conor Gallagher who dominated the Spurs midfield and ran the show for Palace. Winks was finally sacrificed as Tanganga was sent off and Ben Davies was brought on.

Now that the transfer window is behind us, it has come to light that Spurs managed to price out Winks from a move away. Apparently, Aston Villa and Everton had shown interest and even Spurs were keen to sell. However, a £40million valuation deterred either club from making a potential offer.

Given that Winks has not quite lived up to his promise, Spurs might have been better served to get him off their books. Perhaps a more realistic valuation might have been the way to go given the economic climate. For now, Winks will be in limbo over his career as his last showing might not get him regular games.
