Report: Tottenham Hotspur offer young midfielder Harry Winks a new deal at club

The talented midfielder is highly rated at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur are set to hand a new and improved deal to Harry Winks this summer, as reported by ESPN.

The report claims that the 19-year-old will be handed a new long-term contract with the club.

The England youth international has played just the once for Spurs, featuring in a 1-0 win against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League last November. However he was the most used player for their under-21s and has caught the eye with his ability.

Winks will be able to look for inspiration from the likes of Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason, who have recently become Spurs regulars – whilst Tom Carroll looks set to feature more regularly next season after a spell with Swansea City, although he was linked with a move to Aston Villa by The Sun recently.

Will Winks make it into the first-team next season?

It does, despite his promise, seem unlikely. But like Harry Kane, Andros Townsend and Mason before him a loan spell away from the club does not seem an unlikely prospect.

Spurs have good links with Swindon Town for example, who have just lost midfielders Massimo Luongo and Ben Gladwin to QPR – a move to the County Ground for Winks would be shrewd for all parties.

Hopefully he is a star of the future at Spurs, but next season his development may have to come elsewhere.
