According to a report from The Telegraph, Harry Winks is ready to speak to Daniel Levy about a potential move away from the club in January as the midfielder is concerned about his lack of game time over recent weeks.
Winks has not seen a single minute of Premier League action since the 3-3 draw against West Ham back in October.
The midfielder faces a massive battle to force his way into the side, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Moussa Sissoko having formed a formidable partnership at the base of the Spurs midfield.
The 24-year-old admitted in an interview last month that he needs to play regularly for Tottenham if he wishes to be a starter for England at the Euros next summer (Sky Sports).
The Telegraph claim that the 24-year-old is worried about potentially being left out of Gareth Southgate’s squad in the summer if his situation at Tottenham continues.
However, it is asserted that any request for a loan move away from Spurs is likely to fall on deaf years as the club would not want to weaken themselves in the middle of a potential title tilt.

While Winks offers more on the ball than Sissoko (and arguably even Hojbjerg), the system we seem to have settled on is not one that naturally lends itself to a player like the England international. Given the role that is demanded of our deep-lying midfielders, Hojbjerg’s and Sissoko’s engine, athleticism and strength give them an edge over Winks. Unless there is an injury to one of those two, it is difficult to see the 24-year-old getting a look in.
