Harry Winks has been speaking to the press (via Football Daily) about his time on loan with Sampdoria, and has discussed whether he sees a future for himself at Tottenham Hotspur.
A Tottenham boy through and through, Winks came through the club’s academy and youth teams before breaking into the senior side in November 2014. He has gone on to amass 203 appearances for Spurs, with five goals and six assists to his name (Transfermarkt).
Since Antonio Conte’s arrival at the club, however, Winks found himself pushed to the peripheries of the Spurs squad and was deemed surplus to requirements in the summer. No permanent move materialised, but Winks did make the switch to Serie A side Sampdoria on loan for the season.
It’s been a difficult season for Winks though, who has missed the majority of the campaign due to an ankle injury. He’s finally playing for the Italian side now though, and the press out there have been impressed by his displays so far (Gazzetta dello Sport).
Now, Winks has been asked about his time in Italy and his plans for the future, with discussion to be had over whether he even returns to Spurs at all at the end of the season.
He said: “I’m taking it game by game, because you have to in football. With the injury I had earlier in the season, it’s so difficult to think too far ahead because you never really know what’s coming round the corner. So I just take it day by day, week by week.
“At the end of the season, I want to be in a positive situation with the club here. Hopefully, we can stay up and have some great results. On a personal note, to play as many games as possible and just get back to that confidence and just enjoying playing.”

Spurs Web Opinion
Winks is understandably cautious when speaking about the future, and after the injury he had, I’m sure he’s just delighted to be playing again.
I can’t see a future for him at Spurs, to be honest, but as he says, the main thing is focusing on the task at hand with Sampdoria before assessing his options in the summer.
