Jose Mourinho insists there is 'no chance' Harry Winks will exit Spurs

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho insists there is ‘no chance’ midfielder Harry Winks will leave the club in January after forcing his way into the Portuguese’s first-team plans… with transfer interest from LaLiga side Valencia set to be ignored

  • Harry Winks is reportedly a target for Javi Gracia’s underperforming Valencia 
  • The 24-year-old midfielder had recently asked for more playing time at the club 
  • Winks has broken into Jose Mourinho’s side and his boss has insisted he will stay 

Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho says there is ‘no chance’ of Harry Winks leaving amid interest from Valencia. 

Central midfielder Winks played 41 times across all competitions in the last two seasons, but found himself out of favour at the start of this campaign.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Moussa Sissoko and the rejuvenated Tanguy Ndombele have generally been the preferred midfield trio this season.

But Winks has impressed Mourinho with his attitude and performances since asking for more game time prior in December. 

The 24-year-old has played in the last three Premier League games for Spurs after missing each of the preceding eight.

Ten-cap international Winks was reported to be LaLiga side Valencia’s No.1 target, with ex-Watford boss Javi Gracia keen to bring him to Spain on a short-term loan.

Winks was also keen to up his playing time ahead of the European Championships this summer, and told ESPN in 2017 of connection to Spain via his Spanish grandparents.

Tottenham boss Mourinho also responded positively to his club and international team-mate Eric Dier asking for more game time in defence. 

The club will however listen to offers for left-back Danny Rose and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, shunted down the pecking order by new signings Sergio Reguilon and Joe Hart respectively.
