Norwich City made a shrewd move last summer when they decided to take Oliver Skipp on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

Skipp enjoyed a hugely successful season at Carrow Road, having been an almost ever-present for the Canaries after starting 44 of their 46 games in the Championship, featuring as a late substitute in one game and missing another through injury (transfermarkt).

Jose Mourinho revealed that he did not want the midfielder to head out on loan last season and tipped him to become a future captain of the North London club (Evening Standard).

The Sun are reporting that Norwich have set their sights on taking Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour on loan next season following their return to the Premier League.

Canaries boss Daniel Farke would like to see Skipp return for a second stint, but Tottenham’s current situation of not having a head coach in place is making the situation unclear on whether it is a possibility.

Gilmour impressed during Scotland’s 0-0 draw with England at Euro 2020, but later tested positive for COVID-19.

After impressing at Norwich, Skipp deserves the opportunity to now prove he can make the step up and become a regular in the Spurs midfield.

The 20-year-old has the ability to move Harry Winks further down the pecking order while Moussa Sissoko could potentially leave this summer.
