Charlton Athletic, MK Dons and QPR could all utilise the promising midfielder on loan in the new season, with Winks also being linked with Rangers.

Reports surrounding the immediate future of promising young Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks indicate that the Londoners are considering loaning the 19-year-old out in the coming season in order for to him to sample some first team football somewhere, say the Mirror.

Winks made his debut last season in a Europa League match against Partizan Belgrade, and though Spurs have sold several central midfielders, he may still struggle to get minutes in any tournament other than the Europa League or League Cup, and even then there may be other midfielders that need game time just as much as him.

Though self-confessed Spurs fan and new Rangers boss Mark Warburton is eager to take Winks to Ibrox according to the Record, the fact the Gers are still in the second tier of Scottish football would make it debatable as to what the midfielder would gain from featuring at that standard.

With the Mirror saying that Spurs would rather try and find a spot for Winks at a Championship club, here are three teams that may benefit from the arrival of the England Under-19 player:

QPR - Though the Hoops have only just been relegated, and they still possess plenty of players that would be hoping to play in the Premier League, there are question marks in their midfield. Ben Gladwin and Massimo Luongo have been brought in to strengthen that area of the team, but with visa problems surrounding Sandro and injury concerns with Alejandro Faurlin, as well as uncertainty as to whether Leroy Fer will be at the club into next season, that could leave just Karl Henry in the middle of the park. Winks could come in under his former development coach Chris Ramsey and potentially get genuine game time under his belt from someone that knows him well.

Charlton Athletic - The Addicks took Milos Veljkovic on loan last season, with the Serb playing only three games before suffering an injury that ruled him out for the rest of the season. Though Charlton have signed former France international Alou Diarra, and El-Hadji Ba from Sunderland, there is still only Jordan Cousins and captain Johnnie Jackson at the Valley that are central options, and Winks would be one of the more attacking players that could play in the middle of the park.

MK Dons - Spurs have done recent business with the Milton Keynes side after bringing in their star player Dele Alli this summer. Considering Lewis Baker has also left after his loan spell, that means Karl Robinson certainly has room for some young central midfield quality, especially from an attacking perspective. Unless Spurs sanction another loan for Alli, and that's unlikely, Winks would certainly be a useful addition at Stadium MK.
