Tottenham midfielder Oliver Skipp signs a five-year extension

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Oliver Skipp has signed a new five-year deal, confirmed by the club.

Having made 52 appearances with Spurs, the long-time academy graduate has penned an extension that will keep him at the club until 2027.

It is also being reported that Skipp would earn in excess of £80,000-a-week plus bonuses in his new deal.

Skipp has been with Spurs’ set-up since the age of 13, and he made his debut under Mauricio Pochettino in 2018.

He enjoyed a spectacular loan spell at Norwich City last season, helping the Canaries win the Championship, thereby earning a promotion to the Premier League.

Making 47 appearances in all competitions for the Canaries, Skipp’s impressive performances also handed him a place in the Championship team of the 2020/21 season.

After returning to North London, Skipp started to enjoy more minutes with Spurs, making 28 appearances in all competitions this season before picking up a pelvic injury in January.

The 21-year-old was close to returning to action before he suffered a relapse weeks ago, which is likely to keep him out until the end of the season.

Skipp expressed his gratitude upon signing a new deal (h/t Football London): “You would never have thought that that young boy walking through at six or seven and then signing at U9s, you’d get to this stage so I’m delighted to sign this new deal.

“It’s something I’m very grateful for. I think it means a lot when you’ve grown up at this club. My whole family support the club and it means a lot when you step out in front of the crowd. I’ve missed that feeling obviously in the last few months. That’s something I’m pushing to feel that again.”
