Winks receives a promotion as England lose injured duo

Show Grid

Tottenham supporters have expressed their delight on social media after it was confirmed that midfielder Harry Winks has been promoted to the England senior squad.

No longer! Thanks to the withdrawal of Phil Jones and Fabian Delph from the England squad due to injury, Winksy got called up to the Three Lions today and might even make his full England debut this coming week against Slovenia or Lithuania!

Winks has made seven appearances for Spurs this season but just one start in the Premier League.

"Most incredible honour being called into the England senior squad proudest moment of my career", Winks wrote via his official Twitter account following the call-up.

Neither Delph, who was impressive at left back against Chelsea at the weekend, nor Jones trained with the rest of the squad.


Their departure and Winks' addition means Southgate has 25 players to choose from for the fixtures against Slovenia at Wembley and away to Lithuania next Sunday, although Dele Alli is suspended for the first of the two ties.

The Manchester United legend was handed a signed shirt by Southgate and met members of the current squad, including Harry Kane and United starlet Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United centre-back Jones and Manchester City midfielder Delph have returned to their respective clubs for treatment.

Winks played 90 minutes in the 4-0 win over Huddersfield and is a direct replacement for Delph.
