Home All The News Winks backed to leave Spurs for Everton in search of football

Everton have been linked with a move for Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks during the player’s search for regular game time.

He failed to even make the bench for Spurs’ recent victory over Man City at home.

Former Premier League striker Kevin Phillips thinks the player should leave North London, with Everton one potential destination.

Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “I have always been a big fan of Harry Winks. I like the way he plays football. He is never afraid to get on the ball.

“If he was made available I think there would be many teams queuing up to take Harry Winks.

“Someone like Everton could be good. If they were not to get hold of Isco perhaps Winks could play there.

“I sympathise with him. He never lets the team down when he plays and credit to him, he wants to play football.

He’s made four Premier League appearances so far and has failed to become a regular under boss Jose Mourinho.

Speaking about his experiences, the 24-year-old said: “Definitely, my situation at Tottenham is difficult at the moment.

“It’s important that I keep fighting and working as hard as I can to stay in the squad and to stay in the team.

“Every time I get the opportunity for England I love it. It’s a great place to play football here, it’s free and the lads get on really well, it’s a great place to come to.

“I want to be a part of that in the Euros and I want to be in the starting XI in the Euros as well.”

It looks like the midfielder may have to negotiate a move if he wants to start for England next summer.

“Coming through the ranks, he’s been there a long time, maybe he needs that fresh challenge.”

Harry Winks has played just 17 minutes in the Premier League since the start of October.

Barkley has been in good form since signing for Aston Villa and has been tipped to be the ‘signing of the season’.

“I think he could surprise people and plug the gap left by van Dijk at centre-half.”

Tottenham defender Eric Dier will miss England’s Nations League clash with Denmark through injury.

A ‘Spanish-style midfielder’ can’t stay at Spurs and West Ham want over £80million for Rice.

Didier Drogba was a phenomenal big man up top. But only a fool wouldn’t look beyond his football skill.

Bruno Fernandes remains the single redeeming feature of this Man Utd squad. Imagine how dour they might be without him…

Jose was supposedly finished after Man Utd refused to follow his lead but these malleable Spurs could make him special once more…

Chelsea are now title contenders and so they should be after their summer of spending…

Man City are the big climbers from last season while United go the other way. What else is there?
