Report: 'Important' Tottenham player will now miss trip to Israel

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Oliver Skipp isn’t travelling to Israel for Spurs’ final pre-season friendly, according to football.london.

The 21-year-old suffered a ‘minor injury’ in training the day before Tottenham’s friendly victory over Rangers at Ibrox.

As per Alasdair Gold and Rob Guest’s report, Skipp took a stud to the top of his foot that required stitches.

Now, the journalists have reported that the England Under-21 star is not part of the travelling squad for the meeting against Roma in Haifa.

Football.london previously stressed that this injury is not related to the pelvic injury that ended his 2021-22 season prematurely.

Skipp is one of the brightest talents to come through the Spurs academy ranks in recent years.

In 2020-21, the midfielder was superb on loan at Norwich, helping them return to the Premier League at the first attempt.

And last season, Skipp finally broke into the Tottenham first-team squad, making 28 appearances.

However, a pelvic injury ruled him out for most of the second half of the campaign.

Skipp suffered a number of setbacks during his recovery last term, which proved frustrating for player and manager alike.

In February, Antonio Conte told football.london: “He had a problem then we tried to take care with him then we need to have a bit of patience with him.

“He is another player that I have seen great improvement in him. It’s a pity that he is unavailable.

“I hope to have him back very soon. The medical department told me two weeks but I hope to have him available in one week, 10 days maximum.

“And for this reason I push the medical department because we’re talking about an important player for Tottenham Hotspur.”
