Moving to tie down the young Englishman comes as great news for Spurs and Conte, going by Skipp’s brilliant performances when available.
There are plenty of signs that the 21-year-old may well be a star for the future and a crucial player over the coming seasons, with his first full campaign as a senior first-teamer proving fruitful.
