Harry Winks has been training with the Tottenham first-team this pre-season, despite being linked with a loan to Rangers.

Harry Winks is considered one of the best prospects in Tottenham’s academy, and he has been pictured in first-team training today.

The 19-year-old midfielder made his debut for Spurs last season, appearing as a late substitute in a Europa League tie, as well as being involved in the Lilywhites’ post-season tour.

He is highly-rated amongst the Spurs staff, and head coach Mauricio Pochettinon is clearly keen on the youngster, having included him in first-team action last season.

The Argentine coach has started this pre-season with Winks in his first-team training, and it is expected that he will start to feature more and more this coming campaign.

Being involved in senior training also suggests that any chance of Winks leaving the club is off the table, desire being linked with a loan switch to Rangers. The Daily Record claimed that Mark Warburton wanted to bring the midfielder to Ibrox for 2015/16, but he now looks to be part of Pochettino’s senior set-up - for what promises to be an exciting season for the youngster.
