Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Oliver Skipp will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery.

Skipp went under the knife in the United States earlier today in a bid to repair a pubis injury that has kept him out of action since the 2-0 defeat at Chelsea in late January.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte revealed earlier this month that the midfielder had suffered a setback in his recovery after he felt discomfort in the area, having attempted to return to outdoor training at Hotspur Way (Dan Kilpatrick).

The Athletic revealed in March that Skipp suffered an infection in his pelvic area after receiving an injection from the doctors to help him recover from his initial groin injury.

The 21-year-old who signed a new contract that will run until the summer of 2027 will hopefully return to action in time for pre-season training.

Skipp’s absence for the crucial run-in is a significant blow to Conte’s hopes with Bentancur and Hojbjerg looking both off the boil in the recent matches against Brighton and Brentford.
