Harry Winks should reignite his career by swapping Tottenham Hotspur for Southampton, according to former Premier League striker Dean Windass.
Having come through the Spurs academy and been highly-rated at club and international level, Winks has seen his opportunities at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium dry up and made just one start under new head coach Nuno Espirito Santo this season.
It comes after the 25-year-old was also restricted to a bit-part role last season, with the central midfielder making only 15 Premier League appearances.
Winks’ lack of involvement has led to Premier League clubs taking note and Southampton have been courting the Spurs man since before the end of last season.
Windass thinks Ralph Hasenhuttl should boost his midfield further by sealing the signing of Winks before the transfer window shuts next week.
He exclusively told Football FanCast: “I think Harry Winks’ days are numbered at Tottenham. He needs to be playing football because he’s too young to be sitting on the bench and too good of a footballer to be sitting on the bench for Tottenham.
“I’m sure he would be a good addition to any Premier League club in central midfield. He breaks up play and sets the tempo.
“He’d be a great signing for Southampton.”
