Report: Tottenham handed huge disappointment as midfield revelation ruled out of action
Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks has been ruled out for another two weeks as a result of the ankle injury he has been suffering with over the last month, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claim on their website that the 21-year-old pass master, who has been a revelation in the centre of the park for Spurs this season, has failed to shake off the knock which has kept him out of since the Boxing Day win over Southampton, coming on as a substitute to appear for just six minutes.
Despite having been an unused substitute against both Swansea and West Ham in the first fixtures of the new year, it has been revealed he has been struggling to recover from the ankle injury and that as a result he is set to sit out the club’s next two games; the Premier League match against Southampton and the FA Cup clash away to Newport County.
The news is said to have disappointed manager Mauricio Pochettino, who had reportedly hoped to use him regularly as he looks to rotate his squad ahead of another busy period of games.
The youngster, who was thrown in at the deep end by the Argentine boss in the middle of an injury crisis earlier this season, has established himself as a key member of Spurs’ squad, with 22 appearances across all competitions, with outings in all but one of the club’s Champions League fixtures.
He has also earned his first England cap, making his debut in October, and has a total of 58 appearances and a single goal to his name for Tottenham.
