The Daily Mail have revealed that Oliver Skipp is in line to be promoted into Tottenham’s leadership group following his meeting with the club’s executives recently.
Alasdair Gold revealed on his YouTube Channel (starting at 5.25) last month that Skipp was one of the players Daniel Levy spoke to ahead of his decision to part ways with Cristian Stellini and the rest of the coaching staff and put Ryan Mason in charge.
The journalist stated that Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg were the other four players who met with the Spurs chairman but expressed his surprise that Skipp was also consulted, given his relative lack of experience.
The Mail has now explained that Tottenham representatives have held several meetings with senior players over recent weeks in what has been a turbulent period for the club.
It is revealed that Skipp is one of those who was consulted despite not being part of the leadership committee.
The publication asserts that with Hugo Lloris now set to leave the club this summer, the 22-year-old, who signed a five-year contract last year, is in line to be promoted to the committee.

Skipp certainly knows the club well, having a Spurs Development Centre at the age of five.
This move by the club is a testament to the 22-year-old’s maturity and professionalism, and suggests that those high up at Tottenham see the midfielder as a future captain.
