Tottenham midfielder Winks: Lo Celso excellent

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks is convinced by the quality of summer arrival Giovani Lo Celso.

For the draw with Sheffield United on Saturday, Lo Celso completed 90 minutes for the first time since joining on loan from Real Betis.

"Gio has come in and been excellent, he's shown his quality," said Winks to the London Evening Standard.

"It's unfortunate he's got an injury and wasn't able to play sooner. Same with Ryan [Sessegnon]. Gio's very technical. He can receive the ball in between the lines. He's got an eye for a goal and an assist as well, and he'll be a key player for us going forward."
