Former Leeds United player David Norris believes that Harry Winks would have been a success at Elland Road.
Winks has featured for Tottenham on three occasions this season so far, playing both of Spurs’ UEFA Europa Conference League Qualifying legs against Pacos de Ferreira and also making a substitute appearance in the Premier League against Wolves.
During his time at Spurs Winks has featured 176 times and provides versatility to his game as he has played defensive midfield, central midfield, attacking midfield and out wide off both flanks.
Whilst there has been speculation about his future this summer, The Athletic’s Phil Hay revealed that Leeds rejected the opportunity to bring Harry Winks to Elland Road on loan, but Norris believes that the Tottenham midfielder would have been a success with the Whites.
He said: “I think so yeah, he’s a quality player and we’ve said before that Leeds need a little bit more back-up in that area and with what he’s done at Spurs I would have thought that would have been a good fit, a good move.”
Leeds head into the international break with two points from a possible nine after losing on the opening day of the season to Manchester United, but they have responded with back-to-back draws against Everton and Burnley.
The Whites will be looking to continue on their unbeaten run when club football returns and try to replicate last season’s top-ten finish this campaign.
