MetiNews.Com - The Tottenham Hotspur boss has made it very clear that the England midfielder will not be leaving the club this month
Breaking News ! Jose Mourinho has explained why he does not want Harry Winks to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window. The 24-year-old England international was struggling to get into matchday squads under Mourinho in the Premier League earlier this season, mainly getting his minutes in the Europa League and Carabao Cup. Winks admitted while on England duty that he was not happy with a "difficult season" at Tottenham and he has been linked with a move away during the January window, most recently with a loan switch to La Liga side Valencia. However, the midfielder has been getting more starts recently and Mourinho made it very clear that he would not be leaving the club in his press conference on Tuesday.

The Spurs boss then explained further about Winks situation and said his recent more regular appearances were not down to anything the player was doing differently. "Nothing has changed. Good Player. A player that I like, a player that I need, a player that the squad needs," said Mourinho. "A player with a contract for a few years. A player we don't want to sell, a play we don't want to loan. So if somebody is working on that they are losing time. "Even for you journalists.
. Don't lose your time. Don't lose your time. That's my advice."

One criticism of Winks from Spurs fans is that he does not score enough goals, something the player himself admitted previously that he needed to work on. His last goal in the Premier League was a late winner against Fulham at Craven Cottage two years ago, but Mourinho is not focused on that side of his game. "He is not a goal scorer. That's the reality. He is different, it's a different player. Hojberg is having an amazing season and didn't score one single goal for us," he said. "Winks scored that amazing goal against [Ludogorets]. Some players are not goal-scorers, that is just the nature."
