Newcastle fans react to links with Spurs' Harry Winks
A number of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mail claiming that they could target Spurs midfielder Harry Winks on loan.
The Magpies have enjoyed an incredibly quiet window. Joe Willock has been their only first-team addition. And they are yet to make a loan signing.
Unfortunately, Steve Bruce’s men have made a poor start to the campaign. They find themselves in the bottom three after two games, having lost to both West Ham and Aston Villa.
It would be little surprise therefore, to see the club step up their plans in the final stages of the window.
And one of the players on their radar is Winks. The Daily Mail reports that the Tottenham man could be made available for a loan move in the coming days.
Winks has endured a frustrating time over the last couple of years. He only featured in 15 times in the Premier League last season.
Nuno Espirito Santo brought him on for the final moments of the win over Wolves at the weekend. But he played no part against Manchester City.
It will be interesting to see if Tottenham sanction a loan. It does seem that many Newcastle fans would love to see a deal done.
‘Would be a bit of a coup’: Newcastle fans react to Harry Winks loan reports
Several have taken to social media to insist the 25-year-old would be one of their best players if he ended up on Tyneside.
They certainly needs signings. And there is a hope that Winks could help strengthen their squad before the deadline passes.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Newcastle fans reacted to the links with Winks…
I’d take Harry Winks all day and go for Will Hughes better than what we have atm. @NUFC

Harry Winks would be a bit of a coup on loan if that’s on the cards. He’s an excellent player.

think choudhury will get done. winks would be dreamy, although i feel like there could be difficulty moving players out. if the windows ends with willock/choudhury/winks/jones (wish kabak) – tough to label that dereliction.

Would really like the Winks addition, although don’t think that’ll happen.
Not just this ordinary ‘backwards and sideways’ midfielder. Keeps possession ticking. That’s something I feel we lack massively in midfield. https://t.co/8rY8gMKA5A
