Pundit Exclusive: Tottenham player brilliant in last game may quit amid Ndombele claim

Harry Winks was superb for Tottenham in their League Cup quarter-final win but he may he still quit in January if he is still under-used.

That is the view of Darren Bent, who spoke exclusively with Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge.

Bent made his thoughts known after being impressed by the 10-time England man’s 94% pass completion rate as Spurs beat Stoke City 3-1 to set up a League Cup semi-final clash with Brentford.

Winks also provided the assist for the opener in what was his 13th appearance in 2020-21.

But only five of those appearances have come in the league, leading Bent to question the midfielder’s future at the club, especially given the stiff competition he faces from Jose Mourinho’s other options in the middle of the park.

“When you think about the way Hojbjer has settled in, Ndombele’s been good, you know what you’re gonna get from Sissoko, it is difficult for him,” the ex-Spurs forward told Football Insider.

“I think come January he’s gonna have a big decision to make.

“But listen. I’m a big fan of his, I’ve always liked him, I love the way he plays football, his technique, the way he passes the ball. Yeah it, was a very good performance from him last night in a cup quarter-final.

“I did the game for Sky on Wednesday night. And watching him, he’s done very well. He was neat and tidy and you think to yourself, he should be getting more minutes.”

Winks is a Spurs academy graduate and has been with the first team since 2014.

Should he appear in the match against Wolves on Sunday, it will be the midfielder’s 100th league appearances for the club.
