The Sun have claimed that Harry Winks is certain to stay at Tottenham beyond this evening’s transfer deadline and the midfielder is set to be handed a lifeline by Nuno Espirito Santo.
Winks fell down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho last season and struggled for regular game time. Therefore, it came as no surprise when the midfielder missed out on the England squad for the European Championships.
Some sources revealed last week that the England international had told Nuno he wanted to stay and fight for his place.
The Sun now claim that Winks has impressed the Spurs boss so far and the midfielder will be handed an opportunity to resurrect his Tottenham career.
Although Winks has not started any of Tottenham’s first three Premier League games of the season, the midfielder did feature in both legs of Tottenham’s Europa Conference League playoff against Pacos De Ferriera.

I, like most Spurs fans, would not have complained had Winks been sold this summer as he clearly has not delivered on the promise he showed when he initially broke into the side a couple of years ago.
However, I certainly do not count myself among the fans who consider Winks to be ‘useless’. The 25-year-old clearly has some impressive attributes that would make him a useful player, particularly for possession-based sides.
I am not surprised that Leeds wanted to sign him this summer as I could see him thriving in their system. I certainly would not put it beyond Winks to prove his doubters wrong and force himself into Nuno’s starting eleven this season.
