Tottenham Hotspur have officially handed new deals to Harry Winks and Ben Davies.

Full-back Davies enjoyed a solid campaign as he rotated with Danny Rose at left-back, while Winks earned huge plaudits for his influence at holding midfield.

Winks made full use of the opportunities handed to him by Mauricio Pochettino, with Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier having all been sidelined at various points in 2018/19.

It was undoubtedly his best season so far, and he is most definitely loved by the Spurs faithful.

And his brilliant rise could now inspire someone whose position he was once in.

 

TBR’s view

Youngster Oliver Skipp will surely be looking at where Winks is at now and hoping he can emulate the 23-year-old.

The starlet featured in eight Premier League matches last term after he was handed his debut in the EFL Cup against West Ham United.

Encouragingly he played in 10 games in total, with Winks having made just three first-team appearances in his first three seasons with the first-team before his proper breakout in 2016/17.

Winks is now in the position Skipp should be aspiring to get to.

It is surely crucial for the highly rated teenager to see someone flourishing in the first-team having coming out of the same academy he is currently in.
