Jose Mourinho left awestruck by Tottenham Hotspur youngster Oliver Skipp

According to Football Insider (h/t The Express), Jose Mourinho and his backroom staff are priming Oliver Skipp for a future at Tottenham Hotspur.

Currently on loan at Championship side Norwich City, Skipp has emerged as a key player for the Canaries.

Tottenham Hotspur star Oliver Skipp joined Norwich City on loan

A defensive midfielder, the 20-year-old has played in all 11 games in the English second-tier this season. The prospect of him garnering regular game time will go a long way in his development.

According to the report, Spurs believe he will be ready to make the step up to being a first-team regular within a season or two. He is expected to play a big role in the club’s future.

Skipp signed a new four-year contract at Spurs in the summer. Mourinho has a high opinion of him and even believes he could captain the club one day. High praise indeed, coming from a manager of some pedigree.

Skipp has so far made 23 appearances for Spurs. If he continues impressing, there is no reason why he would not make the step up to the senior squad next season.

With the current squad at our disposal, it would have been difficult for him to garner enough minutes in the main team. Rather than play the odd game, it makes more sense for him to play week in week out, even if it is a level down.

The Championship is an intensely competitive environment. The experience will bode well for Skipp’s development.

Sometimes, one has to take a step back to take two forward. As yet, Skipp continues to impress the club’s management. Norwich are currently in third spot, a point off the top.

Skipp could play a major role in their attempts to return to the Premier League.
