A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Daily Mail mentioned that Newcastle United have identified Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks as a top target for this winter transfer window. It has been revealed that the Magpies are eyeing a move for the English midfielder in January after failing to land him in the past.

Winks’ Lack Of Game Time At North London This Season

Winks has experienced a frustrating season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as he has found playing minutes hard to come by so far in this Premier League campaign. The Hemel Hempstead-born talent has only made seven appearances for Spurs this season, picking up one assist in all competitions.

The 25-year-old has only played in two league matches for the North London outfit, so it is only logical for the player to seek a move elsewhere in search of more playing time in the coming seasons. Hence, Newcastle United are in a good position to secure his services as Eddie Howe can guarantee him regular playing minutes at St. James’ Park in the second half of this campaign.

What Will Winks Bring To Newcastle United?

Winks is a hard-working midfielder who can anchor the midfield relatively well when he is getting a regular run of games at the highest level. He usually works tirelessly to make life tough for the opposition at the centre of the park and can even make some energetic runs with the ball going forward.

The English midfield ace is a tidy passer of the ball but needs to find a way to improve his productivity in the attacking end of the field. At the moment, Winks has to find a way to ensure regular first-team starts which makes Newcastle an ideal destination for him this winter.

Eddie Howe needs to add more quality and depth to his midfield department if he wants to have a strong squad capable of avoiding relegation from the Premier League this season. Winks will bring a lot of energy and dynamism to Howe’s midfield and could go on to become a big star at St. James’ Park if he can perform at a high level for the Magpies over the next few years.
