Leeds United rejected an approach to take Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks on loan, according to The Athletic.
Winks has played just a single minute of Premier League football this season, having come on in the dying moments of Sunday’s 1-0 at Wolverhampton Wanderers with Nuno Espirito Santo preferring a pairing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp (transfermarkt).
The England international has featured in both Europa Conference League legs against Pacos de Ferreira, having impressed during last night’s 3-0 win under the lights in North London.
The academy graduate was linked with a move to Aston Villa earlier in the transfer window (Birmingham Mail), while Football.London claimed that while Winks was happy to remain in North London, Tottenham were open to realistic offers.
With Moussa Sissoko rumoured to be on the verge of a move to Watford and Tanguy Ndombele’s future still looking bleak, it would seem unlikely at this stage of the window that Spurs would look to offload Winks.
The midfielder has it all to prove this season, having gone backwards in recent years from the display at Real Madrid which propelled him into the limelight.
