Tottenham youngster Harry Winks on his ambition for next season

Tottenham WHL

The 19-year old is hopeful of more first-team exposure with Spurs in the coming months.

Academy product Harry Winks appeared as a second half substitute in Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 loss against the MLS All-Stars on Thursday, in what was the latest addition to his growing CV.

The 19-year old – who recently signed a new three-year deal, announced by the club – made his senior debut in the Europa League last season and featured heavily in Spurs end of season Malaysian tour.

Winks has now been speaking to the club’s official website to share his thoughts on his latest performance.

He said: "I'm delighted to get more minutes under my belt really - either way, playing five minutes or 55 minutes, I’m just happy to get on the pitch and play."

"I was happy with how I played. I came on with 30 minutes to go, looked to get on the ball and provide energy and I thought I did that, although I could have done more in terms of affecting the game.”

The England under-19 international impressed in his half-hour showing, displaying an excellent turn of pace and composed presence in the centre of the pitch.

He is one of several young talents set for first-team involvement next season and Winks revealed his determination to push on after his latest appearance, adding: "It’s incredible just to be involved and be around it, you can learn from just watching the players. Now I want to take that next step and try to get more minutes, more game time and try to get a chance."

White Hart Lane appears the place to be for young English talent hoping to make a Premier League breakthrough and Winks will be confident of featuring in the first-team set up next term.

A potential loan move had been touted, but Winks' most recent cameo will have offered food for thought for Mauricio Pochettino.

The busy midfielder has shown he can contribute to the Spurs effort this coming season alongside fellow young central midfielders: Dele Alli and Tom Carroll.
