Harry Winks’ injury nightmare at Sampdoria continues, as SampNews24 are now reporting that the on-loan Tottenham man has suffered a setback.

Winks has been out with an ankle injury since completing his loan switch to Sampdoria in the summer. 

Calciomercato reported earlier this week that the midfielder had put in extra work during the international break to return to full fitness as soon as possible.

It was explained that the 26-year-old’s condition had ‘improved considerably’ and there was some hope at Sampdoria that he would be part of the matchday squad against Monza on Sunday.

However, SampNews24’s latest update is to be believed, Winks has suffered a minor setback on his quest to return to action.

The report reveals that the England international did take part in a portion of training along with the team earlier this week.

However, it is said that Winks had to ‘stop again’ and returned to doing individual sessions over recent days.

Hopefully, Winks has just taken a step back as a precaution and not because he has suffered any significant setback. It must be incredibly frustrating for the 26-year-old to not be able to show his new employers what he can do. 

Perhaps, we will only see the best of Winks in a Sampdoria shirt when football resumes after the World Cup as it will take a few weeks for the midfielder to become match-fit and get used to his new teammates.
