Having suffered his first bump in the road at Tottenham, Harry Winks might have to leave his boyhood club to improve his chances of more regular football.
The signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg saw Winks lose his place as Spurs’ first-choice defensive midfielder, with his partnership with Tanguy Ndombele a large reason why he was restricted to limited Premier League starts last season.
Should West Ham sign Armstrong?
But with Oliver Skipp expected to be a part of the first-team next season, Winks could slip even further down the pecking order.
And Dean Windass believes that Southampton would be an excellent destination for the 25-year-old, who’s approaching the 200-appearance mark for the club since breaking through under Mauricio Pochettino, who once said he could be England’s answer to Andres Iniesta.
“That would be a great move for him, Southampton will be up against it this year, but whoever comes in will determine who wants to keep Harry, but it will also be up to Daniel Levy.
“But should Southampton come calling, he could sit in front of the defence and he would allow Ward-Prowse to get forward.”
