Tottenham supporters have expressed their delight on social media after it was confirmed that midfielder Harry Winks has been promoted to the England senior squad.
The 21-year-old’s place in the national squad was confirmed on Monday evening on England’s official Twitter account after Manchester City’s Fabian Delph and Manchester United’s Phil Jones withdrew due to injury.

Winks made his breakthrough into the Spurs first-team last season, featuring in 33 matches in all competitions and impressing with his high energy performances in the midfield.
After recovering from a terrible ankle injury, the midfielder completed 90 minutes for the first time in the Premier League this season in the 4-0 win away at newly-promoted Huddersfield Town.
Winks could now feature for England as they look to seal World Cup qualification in upcoming matches against Slovenia and Lithuania.
