Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Winks open to loan move abroad despite Premier League interest
The 25-year-old has endured a slow start to the season and has suffered for game-time. After the North London outfit signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton last season, it felt that Winks’ game-time would be shortened under Jose Mourinho.
Unsurprisingly, the Portuguese used him scarcely, although the Englishman did rack up 30 appearances across all competitions as he contributed to 3 goals in the process.
After he failed to board the trip with the national team for the Euros, there was some commotion regarding a move this summer itself, and Spurs were said to be open to letting the midfielder leave for a fee in the region of £25million. In fact, Manchester United were also linked with a move, but a deal never materialized, and the 25-year-old stayed put.
He has since gone on to become a crucial player for Nuno Espirito Santo in the club’s UEFA Europa Conference League campaign but has not enjoyed the same joy in the Premier League as he has featured for only 60 minutes in the top division.

Thus, Winks is said to be wanting to move in January on a loan deal and would also be open to joining a foreign club despite the fact that the likes of Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Everton are interested in procuring his services, according to The Times (h/t The Sun).
However, it remains to be seen if any foreign club is interested in signing him, while only time will tell whether Nuno Espirito Santo is open to the player leaving mid-season.
