Leeds 'interested' in £20m midfielder at Elland Road
Jesse Marsch has endured a hectic summer at Elland Road with big names departing and a raft of new recruits arriving but there is still plenty of time to complete other bits of business.
What is the latest transfer news from Leeds?
Winks looks set to leave Tottenham this summer after being left out of the club’s pre-season trip to South Korea by Antonio Conte.
According to Eccleshare, the 10-cap England international has previously caught the attention of Leeds.
What has Eccleshare said on the situation?
According to The Athletic’s Tottenham correspondent, Leeds have held an interest in signing Winks this summer.
But Eccleshare admits that it seems unlikely the move will go any further as things stand.
When asked whether he could see Winks securing a move to another Premier League side, Eccleshare told GIVEMESPORT: “Yeah, I can. Everton were interested then cooled that interest. Leeds is a name I’ve heard mentioned, but as I’ve reported, I don’t think that’s going to go any further. So it’s interesting as to who really pushes for him.”

Would Winks be a good signing for Leeds?
While the midfielder would add some depth to a position Leeds have previously been lacking in, it does not seem a particularly necessary move.
As well as the four new midfield recruits, the experienced Matheusz Klich is still available to Marsch and it is hard to see how Winks is an upgrade on what is already at Elland Road.
With a wage of £91,000 per week with Spurs, he would become Leeds’ second-highest earner behind Rodrigo. Coupled with the reported £20 million price tag, it is an expenditure that simply does not seem worth it for the West Yorkshire side.
