Atletico Madrid consider move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Winks?

Published

on

Atletico Madrid consider move to swoop for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks if he ends up leaving the English capital this summer.

On the whole, Winks has struggled to win over Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese manager took charge, and a recent report claimed that the Lilywhites are willing to entertain offers for the England international in the upcoming transfer window.

The 25-year-old has only turned out in 10 Premier League games this season, starting just seven of them, which has fuelled speculation that he could end up seeking pastures new ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

According to Sky Sports News, Atletico unsuccessfully contacted Tottenham over a possible move for Winks last summer, and the La Liga leaders will reignite their interest in the midfielder if his time at Spurs comes to an end.

The report adds that Daniel Levy values Winks as an important member of the squad due to his home-grown status, but Mourinho’s tactical approach does not work well with the midfielder’s style of play, so the situation regarding his game time at Spurs is unlikely to change any time soon.

Valencia have also been credited with an interest in Winks, whose existing deal with Mourinho’s side runs out in 2024.

World Cup 2022 Qualifiers: Ghana To Miss Jordan Ayew And Amartey Against South Africa

World Cup 2022 Qualifiers: Ghana To Miss Jordan Ayew And Amartey Against South Africa

The Black Stars are set to do without some first team players for their upcoming back-to-back games against Ethiopia and South Africa.

Premier League clubs have decided against releasing players for September’s round of World Cup qualifiers which are due to take place in Covid-19 red-listed countries, ruling Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew, Leicester City centre-back Daniel Amartey and Brentford winger Tariqe Fosu out of Ghana’s showdown away against South Africa.

 

According to a statement by the FA, nearly 60 players from 19 clubs have been affected by the decision.

 

South Africa, who are on the UK’s coronavirus red list, are set to host Ghana for a Group G matchday two fixture in Johannesburg on September 6.

“Premier League clubs have today reluctantly but unanimously decided not to release players for international matches played in red-list countries next month,” the FA announced on their official website on Tuesday.

“The clubs’ decision, which is strongly supported by the Premier League, will apply to nearly 60 players from 19 Premier League clubs who are due to travel to 26 red-list countries in the September international window.

“This follows Fifa’s current position not to extend its temporary release exception for players required to quarantine on their return from international duty.

“Extensive discussions have taken place with both The FA and the Government to find a solution, but due to ongoing public health concerns relating to incoming travellers from red-list countries, no exemption has been granted

Ghana are set to open their World Cup qualifiers with a home clash with Ethiopia on September 3 before making the trip to South Africa.
Earlier this month, Black Stars coach CK Akonnor unveiled a provisional list of 30 players for the uncoming double-header, the roster including Ayew, Amartey and Fosu.

UTAG is Setting A Bad Precedent For Disobeying Court Injunction – Kabila

UTAG is Setting A Bad Precedent For Disobeying Court Injunction – Kabila

Former Acting General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh, has slammed the UTAG executives for not obeying the injunction order by a High Court regarding their industrial action.

UTAG has refused to call off their strike despite calls on them to return to work.

The National Labour Commission, in an attempt to compel them to resume work, secured an injunction from an Accra High Court but the University lecturers Association has defied the court ruling.

According to UTAG President, Prof. Charles Marfo, the injunction has rather worsened the case for the Labour Commission.

“We were almost reaching a consensus until the government’s court issue arose. Now, a whole new ballgame has started because we’re also asking our lawyers to go to court . . . We were getting there. We were pushing; now this argument I’m making is lost,” he said.

Addressing the issue during Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, James Kwabena Bomfeh, popularly called Kabila, bemoaned the UTAG response to the Labour Commission’s injunction.

According to him, UTAG somehow disrespecting the injunction must be condemned in no uncertain terms stressing ”if care is not taken and we allow for positive defiance against a court ruling, we will be setting a certain bad precedent”.
