Spurs fans react as Winks commits future to club

Tottenham have announced that 22-year-old Harry Winks has signed a new deal with the club via their official Twitter channel.

Winks, a life-long Spurs fan, joined the club’s youth set up at the age of 8. The central midfielder made his Premier League debut under current manager, Mauricio Pochetinno, at the start of the 2016/17 season.

The academy product is from Hemel Hempstead, a small town 24 miles northwest of London, and is well liked by Spurs fans who amicably refer to the player as “one of our own”.

The player’s progression from U18s captain to first team squad member is testament to the good work Pochetinno has done in North London.

Pochetinno has developed his reputation as a coach who is skilled at bringing players through the academy and integrating these talented prospects within the first team.

The Spurs manager has an unorthodox, Ferguson-esque policy when it comes to bringing through youth players, a policy which he has used to incredible success with Harry Kane.

If the Argentine rates a young player, he does not want that youngster to be coached by anyone else. He will call them up into the first team picture so that he can monitor their progress firsthand and see theirΒ  attitude on the training field.

Winks, it would seem, is the next youth product to make the step into the first team picture and Tottenham fans are delighted – taking to Twitter to post their support for the young lad.

Here is some of the best of the reaction…
