The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare has revealed there is still no expected date of return for Oliver Skipp, who is continuing to recover from a pelvic problem.

Tottenham announced yesterday that Skipp had put pen to paper on a new contract with the club until 2027.

The new deal was nothing more than the 21-year-old deserved, with the midfielder arguably being Spurs’ most consistent performer this season until he picked up the injury back in February.

The England Under-21 international has already suffered a couple of setbacks in his attempt to return, which has left Antonio Conte frustrated (Football.London).

Eccleshare has now revealed that there is still no fixed date of the return for Skipp, with the midfielder continuing to rest.

The journalist claimed that Tottenham may decide the most sensible option is to wait it out and have Skipp ready in time for pre-season. He added that the midfielder is ‘desperate’ to get out on the field and play football again.

Eccleshare said: ‘On the injury, still no return date and rest is the only solution. So it may be decided that the most sensible option is to wait it out and give him a proper crack at pre-season. He’s obviously desperate to get out playing again but whatever happens, it’s been a breakout campaign.’

Spurs Web Opinion

Rushing Skipp back early and asking him to play through the pain would be too big a risk. While the 21-year-old is certainly a big miss, I would rather see him miss the rest of the season and return for pre-season when he is 100 per cent fit.
