Tottenham Hotspur: Media hail Spurs following ‘brilliant’ Oliver Skipp news -Tottenham Hotspur News

Numerous members of the media have shared their jubilation after Tottenham Hotspur officially announced a new contract for Oliver Skipp. 

The lowdown: A breakthrough year

The 21-year-old midfielder has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season and has been sorely missed whilst sidelined with an ongoing groin issue.

Having made a first-team debut in the Carabao Cup against West Ham in 2018, Skipp spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Norwich City and helped the East Anglian outfit earn immediate promotion back to the Premier League.

The Spurs academy graduate returned to north London and has since made 18 appearances for the Lilywhites in the top flight, becoming a favourite of Antonio Conte in the process.

The latest: Media react to contract development

Here’s what some reputable Tottenham journalists had to say after developments broke on the youngster’s new deal, posting a plethora of takes on this exciting announcement.

“Brilliant news.” – Rob Guest, Tottenham reporter for Football.London (Twitter).

The verdict: Superb news

Tying down the talented England Under-21 international until 2027 is a huge boost to the club as Conte attempts to build a side capable of challenging at the highest echelon once again.

The Italian boss described Skipp as a ‘very important’ member of the Spurs’ side following a 2-0 victory over Brentford in which the energetic Englishman provided two key passes, made one interception and completed one clearance (Sofascore).

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

The 28-cap youth international will now be desperate to get back to full fitness and prove that the reaction to this news is justified.
