Harry Winks to find life in Championship a blessing in disguise as his game needed a shift to return to form

Leicester made two pivotal signings in the summer, Conor Coady from Wolves and Harry Winks from Spurs. A bit of a surprise to see a player in his prime trying to get his game back on track by chosing a newly relegated team, but again a gain for Leicester.

Since the move happened, Winks 27, has not really looked back and played a major part in the success so far under new manager Enzo Maresca.

Still not back in contention for a place in the England set-up, but with Leicester he has shone in a difficult role, hopefully also being able to hold on to this position when rather than if Leicester return to the top flight.

His involvement and contribution to all those Leicester wins so far, could see him being a candidate for the 2024 Euro’s, if the form continues and Leicester continues to win their games going forward, but in the next outing vs. Watford, he will not be on the field, due a yellow card suspension.

Harry Winks came through the academy at Spurs and has also played a season with Sampdoria, joining them on loan last season, but had to see his team being relegated and not really having a grand period in Serie A action. Sampdoria ended rock bottom last season, so to see some succes at this point must be fantastic for the former England international.

Harry Winks was last seen playing for England in 2020, making a total of 4 appearances that year, in total he has 10 caps to his name, all of them during his best years at Spurs. Despite being a player of great potential he was never a secure first team alternative, but hopefully his time with Leicester will become what it looks like at present.
