According to the Sunderland Echo, Tottenham ‘wonderkid‘ Aaron Skinner is now on trial at the Black Cats despite putting pen to paper on his first professional deal with Spurs just last year – with football.london previously calling him one of the club’s brightest talents.
Tottenham could lose Skinner
Skinner, whose trial at Sunderland is now underway, starting for the Wearsiders’ Under-23s in a North East derby against Newcastle United on Monday (Chronicle Live), could potentially leave Spurs if the temporary stay is deemed successful.
The talented defender signed his first professional deal with Tottenham just last year near his 18th birthday, with football.london touting a promising youngster as the club made sure to tie him down, but it appears his future is now up in the air.

As this development emerges, the chances of Skinner following the likes of Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Japhet Tanganga from the academy to the Tottenham first team now appear slim.
This trial could possibly have the potential to lead to a permanent exit, with the details surrounding Skinner’s decision to try out for Sunderland unknown by this report.
Time will tell whether Spurs do lose this ‘wonderkid‘, but his trial at Sunderland is now underway.
