Harry Winks has been extremely unlucky of late, with a lengthy period in the injury room towards the end of last season that saw him miss the Russia World Cup with England.
Winks has recently returned to first team training, and has now made thee substitute appearances towards the end of the last three Premier League games.
It was a little too early for the young midfielder to be recalled to Southgate’s England team for their matches this week, but Winks’ return looks positive so far.
Even ex-Arsenal man Ian Wright has been complementing the centre-mid on SkySports: “He has been so unfortunate with his ankle injury. He can then get himself going again in the Tottenham team.
“He is one of those players that can link players. He will try and pass the ball into those areas where you can hurt the opposition. Fingers crossed, he can get himself back.”
Winks has established himself as both a fan favourite, and a trusted player under Mauricio Pochettino, and will be looking to make 2018/19 his breakthrough season as a Spurs first team regular.
He was recently awarded the number 8 shirt at the club, a prestigious honour for a young central midfielder.
Winks is currently rated at £21.55m by the CIES Football Observatory, and his value should only rise as the season progresses.
How glad are you to see Winks back in action?
