Tottenham starlet Oliver Skipp speaks about how his spell at Norwich helped

Tottenham starlet Oliver Skipp reflected on his loan spell at Norwich and how important that was for his development (h/t Eastern Daily Press). The academy graduate felt that the spell at Carrow Road last season was an important one and improved his game.

Oliver Skipp is a regular for the first team these days. However, it was not that straightforward as he had to wait for his chances. He played through the age groups and was also handed a few appearances over the last few seasons. However, it was clear that he could do with regular game time at another club.

So, he was allowed to leave for Norwich to battle the rigours of the Championship. Skipp not only aced the spell but helped Norwich gain promotion to the Premier League by winning the Championship. Hence, it was no surprise to see them wanting him back for another loan but had to turn to other targets.

The midfielder has looked right at home in Nuno Espirito Santo’s setup and for that, he credited the spell at Norwich.

“I’m not getting too carried away. I feel there is still a lot of improvement that needs to come and will come with training in this environment every day. I can’t speak highly enough of the year I had at Norwich, how much they improved me as a player and a person, on and off the pitch, I’m really grateful for that year and feel I’ve come back a better player for that experience.”

Skipp has featured regularly under Nuno.
