It has been some few weeks for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks.
Injuries to Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele opened up a position in the middle of the Tottenham midfield, and it would be fair to say that Winks has taken his chance.
Indeed, not only has the 21-year-old developed into a key player for his club, he is now in a strong position to make the England squad for next summer’s World Cup.
Winks was one of Tottenham’s better players against Manchester United in the Premier League last weekend, but his biggest night for the club came on Wednesday as he starred in Spurs’ 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the Champions League.
Up against Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, Winks, who is valued at £4.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, did not look out of place as he more than held his own in the middle of the park.
Tottenham’s official Twitter account were keen to relive that match on Friday afternoon, and a picture of Winks brought a lot of responses from the club’s fans.
Winks has gone from young prospect to established performer, and Mauricio Pochettino will now find it difficult to leave the England international out of his first XI.
