Newcastle Reportedly Still Interested In Move For Spurs Midfielder



During the summer, then-manager Steve Bruce wanted to strengthen the midfield with some loan signings. While Leicester’s Hamza Choudhury garnered much of the attention and was likely Bruce’s preferred choice, Tottenham’s Harry Winks was also touted as a potential option.

Of course, Mike Ashley refused to budge on his stance that Bruce must offload before adding. Newcastle are now paying the price without a win in our opening 12 matches in the league.

The Mail has recently reported that Winks could be targetted in the January window. According to Simon Jones, the 25-year-old was on the list of targets over the summer should Newcastle have been able to make room in the 25-man squad.

Jones also reports that Winks is still an option as he meets the criteria for January as a player with Premier League experience. The England international has racked up 112 Premier League appearances in his career.

Winks has not featured much for Spurs over the past few seasons. The Tottenham Academy product made just 15 league appearances last term and has just 8 in all competitions this season.

However, his fortunes may have turned with the appointment of Antonio Conte as Spurs’ new manager over the break. The Italian started Winks in the midfield in the 2-1 come from behind win against Leeds on Sunday.

After the match, Conte named Winks as one of the players who helped spearhead Tottenham’s second-half revival. This is what Conte said as published in football.london:

“I’m pleased because many players are involved today.

“Tanganga, Sanchez when he came in, Winks – he struggled a lot with the rest of the team in the first half, second half he played with a lot of personality and played well.

“Also Sessegnon to come back into the team after injuries was good for us.”

It remains to be seen if Winks will get the consistent playing time under Conte that he didn’t under Espirito Nuno Santo and Jose Mourinho. Though if not, he could be a decent option should become available during the winter window.

    I am very surprised that anyone seriously believes “well y’know” would even get a temporary job at Manure. I believe I have an equal chance, and just looking at my cv it is showing 0% chance

    I don’t think many of us had heard of Tomas Soueck who is a great player at WHU, I think our signings will be in this mould rather than the established names we are discussing and journalists are linking us with. I’m not sure how true it is that teams will not deal with us in January.

    ottawageordie2,
    Yes I did, in the early hours of this morning. So it’s a long time them, I bet you’d get your accent back within a few days though. My nanna had contact with some family that emigrated to Canada and loved writing to them, she was absolutely delighted when they came over to visit one time.

    I do not think it matters one jot if a player has premier league experience..
    And I cannot see us getting any joy from many clubs who voted against us..
    I also think if the Sauds want to buy a player who costs a fortune they will..
    Come January I expect the purse strings will be loosened comprehensively..

    captainmarvel disgree,

    How many “duds” have we bought? shipped on to Spain, France or Italy. Then find out how good they are there.

    Even Mitro and Gayle. Cannot make it in EPL, But can tear up Championship.

    EPL a hard league to play in

    Can you imagine the non stop chorus of “Eddie Howe’s Black and White army” If Steve Bruce rocked up on the 27th, interspersed with off the scale booing and the Monkey’s famous song 😀
