Tottenham Hotspur are close to a new contract with young midfielder Oliver Skipp. Even though the current contract still has two years left

Sky Sports reports that Skipp is close to reaching an agreement on a new long-term deal with Tottenham Hotspur. Replaces the current contract expiring through 2024. News reports state that Negotiations between the ufabet club and the representatives of Skipp are going well. And entered the final step. 

It is expected that there should not be any obstacles and the 21-year-old midfielder will stay at Tottenham Hotspur in the long term. Skipp is now close to returning to the pitch for Spurs after suffering an injury and infection. 

In the first half of the season The England Under-21 midfielder has a key figure in midfield alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbierk. It is now vying for a place with newcomer Rodrygo Bentancur.

So far this season the tenacious midfielder – who was praise for his ‘great intensity’ by Antonio Conte – has produced on average 55.6 touches per Premier League outing, as well as 1.8 tackles and 42.3 accurate passes from 18 top-flight appearances (Sofascore).

Whilst some Tottenham fans may prefer to see Paratici’s behind-the-scenes work produce lavish summer spending or perhaps a new deal for Harry Kane. It’s undoubtedly another plus point to tie Skipp down beyond a current contract that expires in 2024 (Transfermarkt).
