According to a report in Football Insider, Norwich City have made an approach to re-sign Oliver Skipp on loan for next season.
Skipp’s spell at Carrow Road has been extremely successful, with the Spurs academy graduate’s performances in the middle of the park being crucial to the Canaries’ stellar campaign so far.
Daniel Farke admitted last month that signing Skipp on a permanent basis would be extremely difficult for Norwich but Football Insider now claim that the club are attempting to tie up another loan deal for next season.
The report reveals that Norwich are already planning for next term and want to secure Skipp’s services for another campaign should they return to the top flight at the first time of asking.
It is said that Tottenham are yet to make a decision on the youngster’s future but Norwich face an uphill battle to convince the North Londoners to loan him out again.
Spurs have reportedly been extremely impressed by Skipp’s performances this season and it is suggested that Jose Mourinho views the 20-year-old as a potential first-team regular when he returns in the summer.

It seems pretty clear that Mourinho does not view either Sissoko or Winks as a long-term partner for Hojbjerg in the middle of the park. Given that it would be extremely difficult to sign a midfielder of Skipp’s quality this summer due to the financial constraints, I cannot see Tottenham being willing to loan the youngster out again next season.
