Harry Winks made 33 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur during a breakthrough 2016-17 campaign, and was a regular in the early months of last season.
The England international did not play a Premier League game in the second half of the 2017-18 campaign, however, after picking up an ankle problem which required surgery.
Winks only had surgery at the end of May, but returned to the training field earlier this month, and featured against Fulham in the Premier League last time out.
The 22-year-old is certainly a popular figure with the Tottenham fans, and many have taken to social media to pay tribute to the 5ft 10in ace.

Spurs have beaten Newcastle United and Fulham in their first two matches of the new Premier League season, and will be looking to make it three from three when they travel to Manchester United next week.
Winks will hope to be involved in the clash at Old Trafford, and the Tottenham supporters are looking forward to watching the midfielder build back to full fitness over the next few months.
