Agbonlahor verdict on Winks and Dier quitting Tottenham after Paratici reveal
Gabby Agbonlahor has suggested Eric Dier and Harry Winks may leave Tottenham this summer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward claimed their exclusion from the England squad will make them consider their future.
Football Insider learned on June 9 incoming director of football Fabio Paratici was set to tell Winks Spurs will listen to offers for him.
It is understood Tottenham would accept a £30million bid for the 25-year-old, and could even sell for less.
He fell down the midfield pecking order last season and managed just nine Premier League starts.
Dier was a regular in the Spurs side but his form dipped and he was not even included in England’s 33-man provisional squad for the European Championships.

Asked whether it was the right time for Winks to leave the club, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “100 per cent.
“He will be that sort of player that wants to play week in, week out. He won’t want to be on the bench.
“Look, he’s nowhere near this England squad because he’s not played enough for Spurs.
“Eric Dier is the same and they’ve both got big decisions to make where they need to go out and play first-team football or their England careers will be over.
“Harry Winks will know he’s got a lot to offer. He’s a good player but he needs to play more.”
Winks, a graduate of Spurs’ academy, has played 173 games across all competitions for the club.
Dier moved from Sporting CP in 2014 and has 279 Tottenham games across all competitions under his belt.
