Jose Mourinho has plans for Tottenham starlet Oliver Skipp’s future

According to a report by Daily Express, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has space for youngster Oliver Skipp to be involved in his plans going forward.

Currently, the Premier League season has been suspended until the end of April but given the situation at which the coronavirus is spreading, it remains to be seen if the date will get pushed further.

However, once things return to normal, Mourinho has a key role in mind for Skipp as far as the first-team is concerned. The 19-year-old has shown signs of promise, rapidly progressing through the ranks to make a name for himself in and around the club’s circuit.

Having featured in Tottenham’s U18 and U23 squads throughout his fledgeling career, Skipp truly deserves to be a part of Mourinho’s long-term plans at the club.

Prior to the suspension of the term, Skipp had featured in 4 appearances for Tottenham. He also came on as a substitute in our Champions League encounter against Bayern Munich.

The midfielder’s current contract will expire in 2021 but the report indicates that Spurs want to tie him down to fresh terms as soon as possible. In fact, they have already initiated talks regarding a new deal (h/t Daily Express).

The report goes on to suggest that Mourinho plans to use him as a substitute for either Tanguy Ndombele or Eric Dier. Both players haven’t done much to impress this term and with Skipp’s vast potential, this would certainly be a route worth exploring for the boss.
