Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted to a potential new contract for Oliver Skipp after Football Insider claimed that the north London club have opened preliminary talks with the 19-year old.
The report revealed that Spurs have turned their attention to securing the future of Skipp as his contract expires next year.
The academy graduate has made 20 senior appearances in all competitions for Tottenham so far, providing two assists, according to Transfermarkt.
Skipp has also played four times under Jose Mourinho, who hailed his ‘phenomenal’ performance against Norwich City in the FA Cup despite Spurs losing out on penalties, which came just a few days before the Portuguese coach criticised fellow midfielder Tanguy Ndombele publicly for his display in the away draw at Burnley in the Premier League.
These Spurs supporters have reacted to the news of the potential new deal, with one fan calling Skipp ‘very ordinary’ as the others seem to approve of the offer:
