The 19-year-old came through the youth ranks at Tottenham, making his first-team debut in 2018. Till date, he has made 23 first-team appearances, in which he has registered two assists. 11 of his 23 senior appearances came in the recently concluded 2019/20 season.

Oliver Skipp has joined Norwich City on loan

Manager Jose Mourinho clearly rates Skipp highly, having tipped him to become a club captain in the future. However, following the summer arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, the youngster wasn’t likely to get a whole lot of opportunities in the first-team.

So, the club has decided to send him out loan to Norwich City, who were relegated from the Premier League this past season. (h/t Canaries.co.uk)

“I haven’t played as much football as I’d want but this is a massive opportunity and hopefully I’ll show the fans that I’m capable of taking it.”

The move will be a good one for Skipp, considering that he should be able to get regular playing time at the Carrow Road. Fans had their say on the switch on social media, and here are some of the reactions from the Spurs’ supporters on Skipp’s loan move.
