Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Oliver Skipp is making quite a name for himself away from Spurs on loan.
The 20-year-old left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in August to link up with Norwich, who are back in the Championship after a season in the Premier League.
To date, Skipp has made 11 appearances for the Canaries, starting each one of the side’s league fixtures this term so far, and was named their Player of the Month in September.
He has become a key figure for the Championship’s third-placed side, dictating possession in the centre of the park and breaking up play.
In addition, Skipp started for England’s Under-21s against their Albania counterparts on Tuesday, and helped the Young Lions to a 5-0 European qualifying victory.
During the game, the Spurs gem played a well-taken first-time pass into the path of Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala to make the score 3-0 after 36 minutes.
Here is what some fans on social media were saying about Skipp’s contribution:
Winks out in the summer and Skipp comes back into the squad to challenge Hojberg?

I really appreciate how forward and positive that pass is. He is going to be an immense midfielder for us in no time.

Fantastic. Absolutely love the idea of him learning from Hojbjerg next season.

Skipp has not long signed a new contract at Spurs, but he expressed frustration at not getting much game for the club prior to his loan exit.
Once back from his spell at Carrow Road, it’s imperative that Mourinho drafts him in the first team and gives him regular starts.
