​Tottenham legend Mabutt: Winks a future captain

Tottenham legend Gary Mabutt is confident Harry Winks will become a future captain of the club.

The midfielder, 24, has established himself as a consistent performer in the Spurs and England midfield in recent seasons.

And Mabutt has seen the leadership qualities in Winks that are needed to wear the armband.

He told Love Sport Radio: "Last Thursday myself and Harry were visiting a care home for people with dementia, we went there with the Spurs football foundation with a company called Sporting Memories.

"Harry was a superstar, amongst all the elderly people in bad conditions and Harry was fantastic.

"I've got the belief that if he continues to improve as he is, I think he could be a future captain of the club."
