Birmingham City aren’t exactly short on midfielders with five first team central players at their disposal but with Robert Tesche linked with a move away from the club, there could be room for another one to come in through the door.

As we all know, Blues manager Harry Redknapp has very strong links with Tottenham Hotspur because he used to be the boss there, so it got me thinking, will he go back their to ask his old chairman for a favour?

After all, Redknapp was the one to give Gareth Bale his chance in the Spurs squad and going back to his West Ham United days, he was also the one to give Frank Lampard and Michael Carrick their chances so could there be another youngster out there that Redknapp can nurture.

Well, I believe there is. Spurs’ 21-year-old midfielder Harry Winks.

Although this isn’t a name everyone will heave heard, rest assured, he already has bags of experience under his belt.

Despite only being 21, Winks already has three seasons first team exposure to his name, including Premier League and Europa League appearances.

In 2014, Winks made his Spurs debut in a 1-0 win over Partizan in the Europa League, and he then went on to make a further two appearances in the following season, both of which also came in the Europa League.

This season, Winks has made over 30 appearances for Spurs and although he isn’t a goal scoring midfielder, his class on the ball is shown when he does get to play in any competition.

With Spurs being the favourites to sign Everton wantaway Ross Barkley, Winks could be pushed further down the pecking order with the likes of Dele Alli already in his way.

All that considered, that could mean that the Premier League runners up could well be looking to send him out on loan to a Championship club. That is where Blues step in because to have someone of his talent at such a young age would certainly take us one step closer to the play-offs or even automatic promotion in my opinion.

Blues fans, would you like to see the club make a move for Harry Winks? If the club were to sign him, where do you think he would fit into the team? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

  • Really should check out your players a bit more carefully. Barkley is an attacking midfield player, essentially he wants to play in Dele Alli’s position. Winks has been playing much deeper, deputising for Dembele although they are different types of player. So whether or not Barkley goes to Spurs won’t affect Harry. Since he made 30 odd appearances for Spurs last season and would have made more if he hadn’t got injured Winks is long past the point where he’d go out on loan.

  • Agreed. To close to the first team squad to be going anywhere unless its a top club buying him. Nice thought but very unlikely.

  • Tom. This player is already rated at £10m.and rising. He wouldn’t step anywhere near the Championship.
