Spanish news outlet AS are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to allow Harry Winks to leave the club on loan during the current transfer window.

The report suggests that La Liga side Valencia are keen to take the midfielder until the end of the season but Spurs are holding out for a loan fee as part of the deal.

Valencia owner Peter Lim is said to be refusing to spend any money on transfers at present with the club feeling the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Spanish outfit are reported to have been working on a deal for the Spurs academy graduate for a number of weeks, but talks have failed to progress with chairman Daniel Levy living up to his reputation as a tough negotiator.

The 24-year-old is said to earn around £50k-a-week at the North London club and has only started seven of Tottenham’s sixteen Premier League matches this season (transfermarkt).

Winks admitted in November that a lack of regular football with his club put his chances of making England’s Euro 2020 squad in jeopardy (Telegraph).

It would seem highly unlikely that Spurs would allow Winks to leave on loan considering the fixture pile up the club are set to face over the coming months.
