Tottenham Hotspur have produced some talented academy graduates through the years, but few midfielders have shown the promise of young Harry Winks.
The boyhood Spurs fan signed a brand new contract with the club this week, extending his stay in North London to 2024 (BBC).
Since making his debut under Pochettino back in 2014, Winks has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of the first names on the team sheet last time out, playing 41 games (Wikipedia).
The Daily Mail now report that Pochettino is set to make Winks one of the central pillars in his Tottenham side next season.
For any 23-year-old academy graduate at one of the biggest sides in the country, this would be some achievement, but this is especially impressive once you take into account that Spurs have just secured their club-record signing in central midfield (BBC).
Poch is said to want to build his team around a few core players, including Winks, and you would assume Tanguy Ndombele.
The Argentine is said to rate Winks’ composure, ability to retain possession, recycling, and conducting from a deep role.
