Rob Guesty provides update on Skipp and Winks Tottenham future
Rob Guesty has provided the latest updates on the future of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp.
Guesty then went on to say that as a result, Wink may need to move on this summer in order to secure regular football.
Skipp enjoyed a brilliant loan spell at Carrow Road, helping Daniel Farke’s side secure promotion back to the Premier League. The 20-year-old started every single Championship fixture bar two, making 45 appearances in the second division.
Meanwhile, the England international endured a frustrating time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Winks made just 30 appearances across all competitions, including just 15 in the top-flight.
The 25-year-old came back into first-team contention towards the end of the campaign, starting each of the last two league games.
The future: Skipp needs to play ahead of Winks for Tottenham
After his impressive time in the second-tier, getting valuable experience, Skipp is the future of Spurs’ midfield.
The youngster was in brilliant form for the Norfolk outfit during their run to promotion.
Skipp averaged the second-most passes of any player to play more than 40 league games. His passing accuracy was brilliant at 88% as the youth star moved the ball well in the centre of the park.
However, it was the defensive side of his game which shone the brightest with the central midfielder averaging the second-most tackles per game. His 2.2 tackles per game were more than any other defensive player for Norwich.
And whilst Winks proves just as useful with the ball at his feet, the defensive side of his game isn’t as strong as his English counterpart’s.
Winks has been upsurped in the pecking order by Skipp, who has a brighter future at Tottenham. His fall off in displays since Spurs reached the Champions League final means he could well leave the club this summer.
