Former Premier League striker Dean Windass has exclusively told Football FanCast that Harry Winks would get into any top four team.
The England midfielder started Tottenham’s first three Premier League matches this season, but has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho, and has appeared in just one of Spurs’ previous 11 league games.
He was strongly linked with a loan move in January, but Mourinho blocked any potential move, with Tottenham still fighting in four competitions at the time.
Back in November, Winks spoke about a “difficult period” in his career following his lack of opportunities, and recent reports believe that La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid are now keen on the centre-midfielder this summer.
Both Everton and Valencia have previously been keeping tabs on the 25-year-old, and with Oliver Skipp expected to return from his loan spell at Norwich this summer, which could see Winks slip further down the pecking order, he might have to consider his future at Tottenham.
But Windass told Football FanCast that is more than good enough to play for anyone in the Premier League, and believes he should stay in England:
“You don’t become a bad player overnight. He’d get in any Premier League team, Harry Winks.
“Why would he want to go to Atletico Madrid as a young player? He’d get in any top four team in my opinion as a sitting midfield player. Players want to play football and if he’s not in Mourinho’s plans, then he’ll move elsewhere.
“It doesn’t come down to money anymore. It’s about how many trophies can I get. That’ll be an opinion of Harry Winks, he’s a baby.”
