Loads of Tottenham fans have been reacting to an update on the fitness of Harry Winks, as the youngster was pictured in training this week.
Tottenham have yet to put an official date on Winks’ return, but the young midfielder seems to be nearing a return.
The club posted pictures from training on Twitter this week, and Winks looked delighted to be back in action.
There was a real feeling that the 5 ft 10 in ace would follow a long line of impressive youth products to break out under Mauricio Pochettino last season, but he missed the entire second half of the season with an ankle problem.
Of course, there is an overwhelming air of frustration around North London after a hugely disappointing transfer window, and the biggest area fans felt they needed to strengthen was the midfield.
Winks is a wonderfully gifted passer, something that is sorely lacking with the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier occupying the midfield, so his return is a huge boost.
Fans are delighted with the news, and they’re even using the “like a new signing“ cliché. You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Futurw shoe in for England. A much needed link between defence and attack, playing heads up and annihilating positive passing.

Thank god. We’re desperate for a central mid that gets forward passes going

Great news. Like a new signing. Hope he can stay fit & nail down a starting spot for us & then England too. He’s got so much potential.
