Winks out of Spurs clash with Everton


Harry Winks has been ruled out of Tottenham's Premier League clash with Everton on Saturday.

The Spurs midfielder has been absent from their squads of late and that will continue this weekend as he continues his rehab, with manager Mauricio Pochettino confirming that, "He got an injection on Monday. Still he’s not training with the group, and we'll see next week if he can join the group and start to train again. But for tomorrow he’s not ready."

Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose were also confirmed absentees for the clash with the Toffees, recovering from  hamstring and knee issues respectively.

On the positive side for Spurs, Victor Wanyama has been passed fit, and looks set for a start in midfield, as Pochettinho is predicted to continue with his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation, Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele the other two players battling for starting spots in the holding midfield roles.

Pochettino also told the press that it's unlikely Spurs will bring in any new signings this January, following suit with their transfer activity in the last two January windows.

"Until now, before the press conference, there is nothing close," said Pochettino.

"I'm not concerned; I'm not worried. I think we are working and are awake about the market.

"If something is available in terms that we can take, of course we are going to do it but, if not, it's difficult.

"Personally, I never look next to me at what the other teams are doing. It's about how I believe and try to make things happen."

The rumour mill has linked Bordeaux's Malcom with a move to Spurs, but Pochettino was quick to pour cold water on such suggestions.

"It's another rumour," he continued. "There are a lot of rumours in the media.

"Tottenham are a club who in three-and-a-half years I saw in the media, minimum 100 names and out of them we signed only a few."
