Tottenham's Dele Alli has taken the Premier League by storm in the last few seasons as he has impressed at almost every turn, both on and off the field. Already a social media hit ten times over, the 21-year-old has now added fortune telling to his repertoire - and he's pretty good at that too.

Many would be excused for not knowing who Harry Winks was five years ago, as the then 16-year-old was simply a youth player for Spurs, but Alli obviously saw the signs of a promising midfielder as his tweet from 2012 has resurfaced and now gone viral.

The tweet from Alli read: "follow my boy from Tottenham fc, @Harry Winks, England player and future baller, #dontmissout"

Although Alli at the time would have still been at MK Dons, clearly sometimes it takes talent to know talent, as Winks was still four-years away from making his Spurs debut at the time this tweet was posted.

However, Winks won't be complaining as the prediction has now come to fruition as the 21-year-old has received his first senior international call-up for England following the withdrawal of Fabian Delph, due to injury. 

Alli's suspension for England's game on Thursday will also have opened the door for Winks, who has been a reliable option for Mauricio Pochettino off the bench in the past two seasons - making 39 appearances for Tottenham's first team since his debut in 2014.
