According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to offer a new and improved contract for midfield starlet Oliver Skipp following his first-team breakthrough this season.

A product of the Tottenham Hotspur youth academy, the 21-year-old midfielder has always been held in high regard within the club.

Skipp spent the last season out on loan with the Canaries and enjoyed a stunning spell as he played a crucial role in them securing promotion back to the Premier League. The 20-year-old featured in 45 league games, scoring one goal and setting up two more.

Back at Tottenham, the young midfielder has been integrated into the first-team by manager Nuno Espirito Santo, with the youngster quickly established himself as a regular early in the 2021/22 season. Indeed, the 21-year-old has started each of Spurs’ four Premier League games so far.

The midfielder had signed a new deal with the club last year before heading out on loan, extending his stay at Spurs till 2024. However, given his rising stature within the first-team, Tottenham are now ready to hand Skipp a new and improved contract.

Indeed, the report claims that Skipp’s new contract would run till the summer of 2025 while his current wages of £25,000-a-week would rise to a figure between £35,000 and £40,000 per week.
