Tottenham announced that fan favourite Harry Winks had signed a new deal on Thursday, and Spurs fans were delighted with the news.
Winks enjoyed a great start to the season as he broke into the first team on a regular basis.
He made 16 Premier League appearances in the first half of the season but then he suffered an injury.
Since then he hasn’t played for Spurs since February in the FA Cup.
However, this new three-year deal shows that Tottenham still see him as having a bright future in north London and Spurs fans are made up with the news.
The news was announced on the Tottenham Twitter page on Thursday afternoon.
✍️ We are delighted to announce that @HarryWinks has signed a new contract with the Club, which will run until 2023.

Winks took to Twitter after signing the new deal to send fans a message, saying he was “delighted” and that he was determined to kick-on after his injury troubles.
Delighted to have signed a new contract with @spursofficial. It’s just unfortunate the problems I’ve had with my ankle this season but it’s time to get it fixed in order to kick on, and become fitter and stronger for next season ????

And fans responded with enthusiasm, with one saying that Winks was the “real deal”.
Here are the best reactions from delighted Tottenham fans:
Absolutely fantastic news, you could see how much we missed him towards the end of the season.
Also another great indication Pochettino is getting the issues he wants addressed and is being backed, as Winksy is a key player to this club in terms of our midfield moving forward.

Easy to forget just how good Winks was before his injury. He is Dembele's true heir

Yes winksy!! If you can get one injury free season I’m sure you’ll kick on and nail down a starting place for us and England! Decent preseason needed so you’re sharp for August 11th! Let’s go! #COYS
