It’s looking likely that Oliver Skipp will be part of Tottenham’s plans for next season as they bid to fulfil their homegrown quota with fellow midfielder Harry Winks potentially heading for the exit, Football League World has been told exclusively.
The midfielder has had an excellent campaign at Norwich City this season and has helped them to the verge of Premier League promotion with his performances in the middle of the park.
Indeed, he looks like a player ready to make that step up into the top flight and it could well be the case that he actually gets that shot with his parent side Spurs next year.
A source close to the situation at Tottenham has told Football League World that Harry Winks will probably be leaving this summer as he has fallen down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho and this opens up a space for a homegrown player in Spurs’ squad.
Skipp, naturally, fits that description and so could well have a chance at featuring for the north London club next year, where he’ll look to build on what he has learned at Carrow Road under Norwich boss Daniel Farke this season.
Norwich may well have wanted to keep him for next season, of course, but whether they are now able to is up for debate.
