Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has made a claim on Harry Winks’ future at the north London club with the January transfer window set to open in a few days.
This comes after Gold recently uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel where he discussed a range of topics concerning Jose Mourinho’s side.
On the topic of Winks and his future at the north London club, Gold had this to say on the matter:
“Spurs aren’t going to let Harry Winks go anywhere next month, that’s not the case at all.
“You saw [against Wolves], how kind of thin the line is between him coming back into the squad – he started the last two games. This isn’t a player who is surplus to requirements in any way, shape or form.”
Since then, the midfielder, who is currently valued at £22.5 million, has made 157 appearances for the club in which he has managed to score three goals and provide three assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments on Winks…
So far this season, Winks has only made six appearances for Spurs in the Premier League, starting four of them.
As Gold mentioned in his video, Winks started and played the entirety of Spurs’ recent 1-1 draw against Wolves, which shows that he is still a useful member of Mourinho’s squad and not “surplus to requirements” as Gold said.
However, with the Englishman having only earned himself a disappointing match rating of 6.3/10 for his performance against Wolves, this says to us that he has some improving to do if he wants to become a regular starter for the club moving forward.
