Tottenham Hotspur loanee Harry Winks confirms ankle surgery decision as Sampdoria nightmare continues

Harry Winks left Tottenham Hotspur to join Sampdoria on a season-long loan transfer this summer, with many hoping he could even prove his case to England ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The 26-year-old was struggling for playing time under manager Antonio Conte ever since Rodrigo Bentancur was signed from Juventus. When Yves Bissouma arrived at N17, it was curtains on Winks’ chances of seeing regular football.

However, Winks has had a nightmare spell out on the sidelines. His ankle injury, sustained this summer, has persisted.

This has resulted in him making no appearances for the Italian outfit so far. According to Football.London, there have been suggestions that a frustrated Sampdoria want to renegotiate his deal due to these injury troubles.

Harry Winks’ injury nightmare continues

Now, the midfielder has confirmed that has undergone ankle surgery and will now rehabilitate before making a return to the pitch. He wrote on his Instagram account (h/t Football.London):

“Absolutely gutted it’s come to this, I came here with the hope to give my all to this club. However after trying everything to return to playing, a persistent problem I had since the summer has resulted in surgery.”

“I’m positive the procedure went well and all my focus is on returning as soon as possible to help the team. Thanks for all the support”

Winks was the big hope from our academy and many backed him to be a regular first-team starter for Spurs by now. The player who started in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final is now struggling for playing time.

It will be a surprise to see manager Antonio Conte backtrack on his decision and give an extended run of minutes to Winks anytime in the future. The Italian manager signed central midfielders in consecutive transfer windows even with the Englishman at his disposal.

Hopefully, he recovers well and gets a few games under his belt before he returns to north London from Italy. He can still be an asset for us even if it means him having to sit on the bench for most games.
