Report: Tottenham reluctant to send Rangers target Harry Winks on loan to Ibrox

Tottenham WHL

Rangers could struggle to land Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks this summer, according to reports.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham would prefer to send midfielder Harry Winks to a Championship club instead of Rangers.

Winks, 19, has come up through the ranks at White Hart Lane, and is tipped to be a star of the future at Tottenham considering his performances in the youth and reserve teams.

The central midfielder was even handed his first team debut last season, coming on as a substitute in a Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade.

Now though, Winks could be loaned out next season, with first team experience vital to his development at this stage in his career.

The Daily Record recently reported that Rangers were hoping to lure Winks to Glasgow this summer, with new manager Mark Warburton keen to add quality to his squad.

However, The Mirror report that Tottenham are reluctant to let him make the move to Ibrox, preferring to send him to an English Championship club instead.

Should Tottenham send Winks to Rangers?

Tottenham are of course looking to send Winks to a place where he can play and develop in a competitive division - hence their concern about a loan move to the Scottish Championship.

However, Tottenham sent another young midfielder - Alex Pritchard - out to work under Warburton last season at Brentford, and he developed to the point where he could make an impact in the first team in the coming season.

With that in mind, Tottenham could do worse than send Winks to Rangers, especially considering that a move to a side winning on a regular basis would be far better for his development than a move to a lower Championship side, who could bring a losing habit.
