Leicester City is closing in on securing a permanent deal for Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, following the agreed departure of James Maddison to Spurs.
Winks is expected to undergo a medical later today (Wednesday), marking the end of his remarkable 21-year tenure at Tottenham, having progressed through the club’s youth set-up to the senior squad.
The 27-year-old midfielder impressed during his loan spell at Serie A side Sampdoria last season, attracting attention during the latter part of the campaign. Ongoing negotiations between Leicester and Tottenham indicate that a deal is on the verge of being finalised, according to the Evening Standard.
Reports on social media suggest that a fee of £8 million, with an additional £5 million in add-ons, has been agreed upon. Notably, Winks’ transfer is independent of the discussions surrounding Maddison’s move.
Leicester City’s interest in Winks stems from his versatility and quality, making him a valuable asset in their quest to secure an immediate return to the Premier League.
The confirmation of the deal for Harry Winks is eagerly awaited by Leicester City fans, as the club strategically manoeuvres in preparation for their upcoming Championship campaign.
The Tottenham rebuild is well underway now and more signings and outgoings are expected over the next few weeks.
