Tottenham Hotpsur midfielder Harry Winks has declared himself "delighted" over his new contract. The 20-year-old, widely considered to be one of the club's most hottest prospect, has put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at White Hart Lane until at least the summer of 2019.
A product of the youth academy, Winks has represented England at almost every youth level up to and including the U20s. He was named in Spurs' squad for their pre-season tour of the US last summer, appearing against the MLS All-Stars in addition to International Champions Cup friendlies with Real Madrid and AC Milan.
After making his senior first-team bow under Mauricio Pochettino as a late substitute in a Europa League group-stage clash with Partizan Belgrade in 2014, the player appeared again during a 3-1 victory over Azerbaijani debutants FK Qarabag last September. The most recent of his three first-team appearances came in February of this year, when he replaced Ryan Mason for final moments of the comfortable win at home to Fiorentina that secured Tottenham a last-16 meeting with Borussia Dortmund.
"I'm delighted," Winks told the club's website after his new deal was officially announced. "As a young player it's everything you want. You want to be around top players and a top club that's pushing for the best honours. It's a fantastic club to be involved with, especially at such a young age. The manager trusts young players and I'm grateful for the chance he's given me."
Following the eventful 2-2 draw with Arsenal on 5 March, Spurs, who have not won a top division title since the legendary Bill Nicholson led them to the double in 1960/61, currently sit second in the Premier League, five points adrift of Leicester City with just nine matches remaining. Pochettino's side travel to Dortmund next before returning to domestic action with a visit to relegation certainties Aston Villa three days later.
