According to The Sun, Valencia have made a fresh second bid to try and sign Tottenham midfielder, Harry Winks, during the January window.
The report claims that the La Liga giants aren’t willing to give up easily on landing Winks, after seeing an initial bid apparently rejected by Spurs in the last week or so.
Valencia have apparently come back to Spurs with a second offer to try and take Winks on loan. The report quotes respected Spanish journalist Guillem Balague as saying the Spanish side are prepared to cover all of Winks’ apparent £50k-a-week wages (Spotrac).
It remains to be seen whether Spurs boss Jose Mourinho will let Winks go. The strong suggestion is that Spurs want to keep Winks, although the player himself has ties to Spain and may want regular football as he looks to seal a Euros place with the England squad.
Winks has been in and out of proceedings this season but has started the last two Premier League games against Leeds and Wolves.

While Winks might be open to a move to get some football under his belt, Spurs won’t want to lose him, especially while they don’t have a replacement lined up.
Dele Alli’s future also remains up in the air, so it’s hard to envisage the club allowing both Alli and Winks to leave.
Winks is also playing quite well lately. Mourinho rates him, so in the long run, he does have an important role to play.
