“Conversations will be had” about “incredible” Spurs midfielder this summer, says Mason –


    Ryan Mason believes Oliver Skipp is ready to make the step up into Tottenham’s first-team next season after a successful loan spell with Norwich City.

    Skipp helped Norwich achieve promotion back to the Premier League and was subsequently named in the Championship Team of Year.

    Having already impressed in a series of senior appearances for Spurs in the past, there is now talk of him playing a significant role for his parent club next term.

    And Mason says he’s sure “conversations will be had” this summer about Skipp’s first-team chances ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

    “My opinion may be different to many but I think Oliver Skipp is an incredible talent and one of the most professional guys I have come across in the academy,” said Tottenham’s interim boss (via Football London).

    “He has had a fantastic season so I’m sure those conversations will be had over the summer.

    “I think Skippy is ready personally, but with these decisions it depends who the manager is and where the club want to go with him.”

    Norwich’s Sporting Director Stuart Webber has suggested the Canaries would like to take Skipp on loan again next season.

    “I have spoken to Spurs already. I have obviously spoken to Oliver already. And his representative. We’d love to keep him,” Webber said (via Pink Un). “What’s key for us is we’ll always leave a place open for him, because his impact is huge. But I think there’s a few things which need to fall into place for that.”

    There’s no doubting another year playing for a well-coached Norwich side would do Skipp plenty of good when it comes to his development.

    But there is an argument to be made that the 20-year-old could be an important part of the first-team squad next year.

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has played far too much football this season – having Skipp around for a bit of rotation next year could be useful.

    Alternatively, Hojbjerg and Skipp could pair up in central midfield depending on how Spurs want to set up.
