An ankle injury hampered him during the second half of the campaign, costing him a chance of a place in England's World Cup squad.

The England international is due to undergo surgery on the problem this summer and the club say they expect him to be back in time for pre-season training.

"I'm delighted to sign a new contract with the club,” said Winks, who came through the youth ranks and has made 61 appearances.

"It's been a mixed season for me in terms of playing, with some of the heights of the Bernabeu and getting some great wins, but there’s been some lows as well with my ankle injury."
