Winks’ time at Tottenham
Harry Winks is a product of Tottenham’s youth system
The now 23-year-old was promoted to Spurs’ senior side in 2016.
Since making his Tottenham debut, Winks has gone on to play 102 games for the north London club, in which he has scored two and assisted two.
When fit, Harry Winks has shown himself to be a top quality central midfielder who could have a bright future for both Spurs and England.
However, the young midfielder is often stricken with injuries.
During the 2017/18 season, Winks missed 17 games through injury.
Winks’ injury troubles also saw him left out of the latest England squad for the Nations League finals.
Winks on his importance
Winks’ 2018/19 saw him miss 12 games through injury, meaning he played in just 26 of Tottenham’s league fixtures this past season.
However, despite this, Winks seems quite pleased with his latest campaign.
In a recent interview, Winks stated that he feels that he has become a key player for Tottenham.
The England international also mentioned how the 2018/19 season was perhaps his best with Spurs:
“I had a relatively injury-free season last year until the end.
“I played a lot of matches, started a lot of matches and it was incredible, probably my best season so far at the club.
“I feel I’ve become an important player now and I couldn’t ask for more.
“If you’d asked me three or four years ago if I wanted to be in this position now I would have snapped your hand off, but the most important thing now is not to get carried away, to work as hard as I can and try to stay in there and maintain that position because there are so many top players here.” As quoted by Sky Sports.
