Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to reward Oliver Skipp with a new contract extension and a pay rise, according to The Sun.
The academy graduate only signed a new four-year deal in July of last year while Jose Mourinho was in charge of the club and soon after joined Norwich City on a season-long loan.
Mourinho, who labelled Skipp as a future captain of Tottenham admitted that he did not want the midfielder to head to Carrow Road, where he excelled in helping the Canaries to return to the Premier League at the first attempt (Evening Standard).
Skipp has become a first-team regular during the opening few weeks of the new season under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo, with the club prepared to offer him a new contract until 2025 and improve his current salary from around £25,000-a-week to a figure of in the middle of £35,000 and £40,000.
Skipp has shown early promise in his appearances this season and has certainly overtaken Harry Winks in the pecking order as a partner of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Fans still need to show patience with Skipp, who at 21, has all of the tools to become a top Premier League midfielder.
