Spain not considering shock call-up for Spurs star Winks

Harry Winks is being considered for a shock international call-up by Spain, according to reports. Or he isn’t.

Tottenham midfielder Winks has impressed so far this season, and has been touted for a potential place in Gareth Southgate’s next England squad, with the national team’s next game coming in a friendly against Germany on March 22.

Winks’ hopes of making that squad have been examined, with the 21-year-old having played 18 games at youth level for the international side.

However, the Daily Mirror report that Spain are investigating his eligibility ahead of a potential shock call-up.

Winks has Spanish grandparents (he doesn’t) and, considering he is yet to play a competitive game for England, the Spanish FA are hoping to convince him to switch allegiances (they aren’t).

There seems to be one problem, mind you…
