'He Showed He's Angry' - Pundit: Spurs star to push for Jan exit after 'Losing his head'
Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed Harry Winks’ head has gone and he will push to leave Tottenham Hotspur in January.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, the former Aston Villa and England forward suggested will push for a January exit as he is “angry” about not playing in the Premier League.
Winks walked straight down the tunnel instead of sitting in the stands last Thursday night after being substituted against Royal Antwerp in the Europa League.
The England international has not appeared in the Premier League since their 3-3 draw with West Ham United in October.
Football Insider revealed last month the 24-year-old would push for a January exit if he did not win back his place in the starting XI.
After his reaction last week, Agbonlahor insisted Winks leaving in the winter window is looking more likely.

He told Football Insider: “When I was at Aston Villa we were in the UEFA Cup and no one wanted to be a UEFA Cup player. The Champions League is different because it’s the Champions League. But the Europa League is not the Champions League and players don’t want to play in it if they’re not playing in the Premier League.
“That’s where players lose their heads and a lot of the Spurs players will. Harry Winks doesn’t want to be a Europa League player. You’d rather play Premier League and not play any games in the Europa League, no offence to the competition.
“That’s what Harry Winks showed, he showed he’s angry and I’m sure he’ll be pushing for a move.
“He knows that playing the Europa League is not going to get you in the England squad for the Euros.”
Winks has played 11 times for Spurs this season across all competitions but only started two Premier League games.
