Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to reports which suggest that Aston Villa are monitoring Harry Winks.

The Telegraph claim that Dean Smith is currently assessing potential options with Winks having been put under their microscope, along with Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse, Brighton’s Dwight McNeil and Todd Cantwell of Norwich City.

The Evening Standard claimed earlier this week that Tottenham were prepared to listen to offers for the former academy graduate.

Winks came to prominence under the management of Mauricio Pochettino and hit the heights with his performance in the Champions League group stage clash against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2017 as a 21-year-old.

On that evening, Winks had a 94% pass completion and helped to break up the midfield play of the Spanish giants.

The midfielder has since experienced a tough season under Jose Mourinho with his lack of game time having ended up costing him a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2020.

Winks admitted in November that he admitted that not playing regularly was difficult (talkSPORT) and it remains to be seen what future he may have under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

Here is how some fans reacted to a potential Winks exit.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Can’t see AV letting Grealish go for that money in this over-inflated player cost market. Can’t see Spurs paying 60M for a player either.

  2. Grealish and Kane in the same SPURS side? After how last season took such a tragic nose dive, that might be the ONLY reason I can think of why I wouldn’t want to throw away my season ticket for next year.
