Oliver Skipp tipped for a bright future by Norwich City teammate Kenny McLean
Skipp, a product of the Tottenham youth academy, left the club last summer, joining Championship side Norwich on loan for the 2020/21 campaign. And the midfielder has made quite the impression in his time with the Canaries.
An ever-present in Daniel Farke’s side, Skipp has played a pivotal role in Norwich City’s push for promotion back to the Premier League. And McLean, who has often partnered the Tottenham loanee in midfield this term, has spoken in glowing terms of the youngster.
“He’s 20. It’s incredible what he is doing. To come in and perform like that every three days, for such a young lad is unbelievable. The maturity he shows in his game is outstanding. The sky is the limit for the boy, I think everybody has seen that this season. I get to see that every single day.”
This comes on the back of some solid praise from the Canaries’ manager Farke himself, who had hailed Skipp’s quality and character recently.
Skipp has started each of Norwich City’s 34 EFL Championship matches this season. The 20-year-old also scored his first goal in senior football recently, when he found the back of the net against Birmingham City last month.

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho had revealed earlier that he was so impressed by Skipp that he considered bringing him back from his loan spell.
The 20-year-old is thriving at Carrow Road and the experience of him potentially winning the Championship and helping Norwich back into the Premier League will hold in good stead when he returns to Tottenham.
