Valencia eyeing loan move for Tottenham’s Harry Winks

La Liga side Valencia are keeping tabs on Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, with a potential loan move in the offing.

The England man became a regular in the Spurs midfield during Mauricio Pochettino’s time at the club, a position he retained following the arrival of Jose Mourinho in November 2019.

However, the signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton last summer has seen Winks’ time in the starting XI limited, with the 24-year-old being afforded just five Premier League starts so far this campaign.

The Daily Mail report that Valencia are monitoring the out-of-favour Spurs midfielder as they look to bolster their squad in a bid to avoid relegation from La Liga.

Javi Gracia’s side sit just three points above the drop zone, and the former Watford manager – who is a ‘huge admirer’ of Winks from his time in the Premier League – has pinpointed the Spurs midfielder as a January transfer target.

Valencia find themselves in the midst of a financial crisis, with many of their stars mooted to be set to depart the Mestalla as the club looks to generate transfer funds. Subsequently, a permanent move for Winks appears to be out of the question, though the Spanish side are hopeful a loan deal can be agreed before the end of the transfer window.

Spurs are already understood to have rebuffed one loan enquiry from Los Che, though a second offer is likely to be tabled in the near future.

With the European Championships set to take place later this year, Winks is keen to play first-team football as he looks to secure his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad this summer.

The midfielder recently described his situation at the north London club as ‘difficult’, and a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium could well be on the horizon.
