Harry Winks gives Aston Villa transfer boost in blunt message to Tottenham boss Nuno

Asia's Tech News Daily

Harry Winks has opened the door to a January transfer after being frozen out by Tottenham Hotspur head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

Aston Villa are understood to be keen to bolster their midfield ranks in the upcoming transfer windows, and England international Winks is reportedly a player of interest to Dean Smith.

Winks, 25, was linked with a move to Villa Park in the summer, while Everton were also said to be interested in the midfielder.

Nothing materialised, though, and Winks remained at Tottenham, where he’s played just 61 minutes of Premier League football this season.

Winks has started four of Spurs’ Europa Conference League games and played 90 minutes as Nuno fielded a second-string team versus Vitesse on Thursday night.

A Spurs team, which also included Dele Alli, was defeated 1-0 by the Dutch side and Winks opened up on his future in an emotionally charged post-match interview.

Winks told The Mirror: “Listen, I love Tottenham, I’ve always made that clear… but I want to play football – and I want to play regular football.

“The only way to play your best football and build momentum is when you’re playing regularly.

“I’m giving my all for the club; of course I am. They stuck by me, I stuck by them – and I want to play for Tottenham. But it is difficult when you get matches here and there, confidence is low, and you don’t get that run of games.

“Of course, my confidence is low. When players are not playing well, and you only have yourself to blame, it’s difficult. I want to be at my best, firing and playing really well.”

Winks’ desperation for regular football will put Premier League teams on red alert, including Villa – who are set to lose midfielder Marvelous Nakamba to Africa Cup of Nations duty in late December.

Having been a regular pick for England boss Gareth Southgate just last year, Winks is determined to give his career the reboot it needs.

He isn’t planning to go banging on Nuno’s door just yet, though.

Winks added: “It’s got to be the right time for me. The manager has a lot of games to think about, they are coming thick and fast, and I don’t want to stand in the way of preparation and stand in the way of the other players in the team.

“When the time is right, I’ll have a conversation, but right now, it’s important that the team and manager focus on the next game, and he doesn’t get any distractions from me.”
