Norwich City have opened talks with Tottenham as they look to re-sign Oliver Skipp for next season.
The midfielder joined the Canaries ahead of the current campaign, and he has quickly established himself as a key member of Daniel Farke’s XI.
Skipp has yet to miss a league game as Norwich hold a commanding position at the top of the Championship.
And, Football Insider have revealed that the Yellows are already planning ahead, as they hope to strike an agreement with Spurs that will see Skipp stay at Carrow Road for another.
The update suggests a deal could be reached, although it’s only likely to happen if Norwich win promotion, which seems inevitable right now given their 11-point lead over third-place.
Do Norwich City and Ipswich Town have these 10 things in common?
Unsurprisingly, this news excited the fans, who recognise just how important Skipp has been this season, and they feel he would continue to play a big part next season in the top-flight.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Would be fantastic if we did resign him for next season

This would be epic.

Would be massive

Sadly I don't think the approach will get anywhere. Skipp will go straight into the Spurs first team next season.

Hopefully he will tell his agent he wants to stay and play rather than be a midfield reserve at Spurs 🤔
