Tottenham 26-year-old could quit this summer amid 'brilliant' Rodrigo Bentancur verdict - expert
Harry Winks could be forced out of Tottenham this summer, according to Paul Robinson.
The former White Hart Lane number one , speaking exclusively to Football Insider, suggested the 26-year-old will quit in search of regular game time with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur the “preferred partnership.”
Hojbjerg and Bentancur starred for Spurs in a 4-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.
The pair have started the last six consecutive Premier League fixtures alongside each other in midfield.
Winks has seen his game time diminish since the arrival of Bentancur in January.
The 10-times England international has just over two years remaining on his contract in north London.

When asked for his thoughts on Winks’ future, Robinson told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs: “Hojbjerg and Bentancur are the preferred partnership.
“You always worry about players adapting when they come to the Premier League but Bentancur has settled in brilliantly. He’s been excellent signing.
“He demands a starting spot every week. It is him plus one and at the moment it is Hojbjerg.
“Winks has found it hard to get into the team. It looks like the time has come for him to move on.
“He needs to be playing every week given the stage he is at in his career. He needs a manager who will show him a bit of love and play him every week.
“Hojbjerg and Bentancur are the first choice right now. Hojbjerg has not been consistent this season but he is playing really well at the moment. Bentancur is the one setting the bar.”
