Harry Winks is prepared to leave Tottenham Hotspur on loan in the January transfer window, according to The Times.
The midfielder struggled regular first team football under Jose Mourinho last season, having made just fifteen Premier League appearances, of which nine came within the starting eleven (transfermarkt).
Winks admitted in November that his situation in North London was difficult when speaking of his hope to be named in England’s Euro 2020 squad (Sky Sports) with Gareth Southgate eventually overlooking the 25-year-old for last summer’s tournament.
The Spurs academy graduate has found himself behind the likes of Oliver Skipp, Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the midfield pecking order under Nuno Espirito Santo in the opening few weeks of the new campaign.
Winks is now looking to get his career back on track and is open to a move abroad.
Spurs were said to have been open to offers during the summer transfer window with interest being registered by Aston Villa, Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion.
The boyhood Spurs fan was prepared to stay at the club and fight for his place following the arrival of Nuno, but is now looking further afield to rejuvenate his career and with the hope of returning to the England setup.
Winks needs to have a fresh challenge and experience to give his career the push he needs, having gone backwards over the past couple of years.
Once considered one of the best young talents in English football, he is seriously at risk of becoming a forgotten man.
