By Harvey Byrne

Tottenham have confirmed that youngster Harry Winks has signed a new five-year deal – and supporters are delighted on Twitter with one of their prospects agreeing new terms.

The north London side revealed on their official Twitter account on Friday afternoon that the 20-year-old had agreed a new contract with the club.

Winks agreed to extend his deal at White Hart Lane until 2021 and he now follows senior midfield duo Eric Dier and Christian Eriksen, who also agreed extensions at the club.

Tottenham fans share an excitement about the young prospect with many taking to Twitter to express their delight at him signing a new deal.

However, some were quick to point out that he’s hardly featured in the senior side, with fans keen to see more of him.

Here are a selection of their messages:

Winks’ previous deal ran out in 2019 and Mauricio Pochettino moved to tie down the bright prospect further.

He made his first team debut in 2014 in the Europa League against FK Partizan and he has made three other appearances for the north London club since.

Winks has become one of a number of youth stars that Pochettino is looking to integrate into his side and the youngster was an unused substitute against Everton before coming off the bench against Liverpool in the new campaign.
