Roses are red

Harry Winks just signed another new contract with Tottenham Hotspur
That’s pretty swell
OK, my poetry sucks, but for Spurs fans this Valentine’s Day is getting off to an excellent start! A meree fivmonths from his last contract extension, 21-year old Tottenham youth product and midfielder Harry Winks has put pen to paper again to sign a new deal that keeps him at the club through 2022.

This new deal tacks on another year to Winksy’s contract — his previous contract expired in 2021. The official release doesn’t discuss wages, but the Evening Standard suggests that his new deal is worth about £25k/week.
Winksy has been a solid rotation option for Spurs this season, coming off the bench 15 times already and impressing in his short appearances. In comments on Spurs’ website, Winks said he’s absolutely delighted to stay at Spurs.
“I’m delighted, over the moon to sign another contract with the club, commit my future even more and I’m looking forward to the years ahead. I’ve had a lot of game time this year and it’s been everything I’ve wished for since the beginning of the season, but ultimately football can change and I need to keep that level of work rate, keep that work ethic up and keep myself going in the future.
“Obviously I’m doing well on the pitch to be rewarded with this contract but ultimately it doesn’t stop there. As soon as you’re awarded a new contract you’ve got to keep working hard to justify the reason why you got that, so that’s my intention now.”
“I’m still a Spurs fan, it’s always my boyhood club. Every time I play for the team I give it my all, it’s in my nature really. I’ve been playing for Tottenham since I was six but I feel like I’m gradually getting into more of an important role in terms of coming off the bench or getting games from the start but I wouldn’t say I’m the finished article or anything like that yet. I’ve still got a lot of work (to do) to establish myself in the team and to keep the consistency because obviously it can change if I don’t keep working hard and I don’t keep playing well.”
All the pink construction paper hearts!
