Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold was asked about Oliver Skipp and his current contract situation.

The 21-year-old Spurs academy graduate has been fantastic for Tottenham this season. He has arguably been their best midfielder overall, and there’s no doubt about the fact that he’ll be a key player for Nuno Espirito Santo this term.

Everyone at Tottenham knew Skipp was going to shine at the top level. Daniel Levy saw his huge potential and decided to hand him a new deal a little over a year ago, but his performances now will force Spurs’ big boss to draft up a new, better contract.

Gold was asked about Skipp’s future and the Spurs correspondent revealed that it’s only a matter of time before it’s sorted out.

Alasdair Gold: Oliver Skipp will soon be given a new Tottenham contract

Asked if a new contract for Skipp is in the works, Gold said during a Q and A session on Football London: “I think it’s just a matter of time.

“He’s a key starter now and he’s only going to get better. He loves it at the club and is a far more developed player than the one who signed a four-year deal 15 months ago.

“So, I think that will be sorted sooner rather than later.”

Skip deserves a raise!

Tottenham’s campaign has been underwhelming so far, but Skipp has been a shining light. The youngster spent last season on loan at Norwich and he was brilliant there, and he has carried his form into the new season in the top-flight.

Spurs fans have been impressed with his display every time he has played and it’s only right that he gets a brand new deal. It’s important for Spurs to tie him down to a long-term contract as well, as the youngster is the future of the club’s midfield.

Lee Carsley, head coach of the England under-21’s, labelled Skipp as a ‘very underrated‘ player with ‘outstanding ability‘. Watching the 21-year-old play as well as he has this season, it’s difficult to disagree with his international boss.
