Tottenham are closing in on finalising a new long-term deal for midfielder Oliver Skipp, Alasdair Gold reports.
The Lowdown: Skipp sidelined
Skipp, whose current deal runs until 2024, had been a regular under both Nuno Espirito Santo and Antonio Conte before suffering a groin injury back in February.
Will Conte still be at Spurs next season?
I'm not so sure!
Conte recently admitted he wasn’t sure when Skipp would make a return to action due to complications with his current issue, but it seems as if he has taken this time to sort out his long-term future in north London.
The Latest: Gold’s reveal
The Verdict: Announced before West Ham?
It seems as if it is just a matter of time until Skipp’s new contract is announced following this update from Gold, so there may well be an official announcement prior to the clash with West Ham on Sunday.
This update is good news for everyone involved, with Skipp enjoying a breakthrough campaign after spending last season on loan with Norwich.
The club clearly sees the central midfielder as a key part of their plans going forward, so hopefully, a contract will be confirmed and Skipp will be back playing before the season comes to an end.
