Tottenham Hotspur have announced that Oliver Skipp has now undergone surgery to repair a metatarsal fracture that he suffered while playing on loan at Norwich City.

The young Spurs midfielder joined the Canaries on loan at the start of the 2020/21 season and has been a force in the centre of their midfield.

In fact, Skipp has played all 45 of Norwich’s Championship games this season, as well as two FA Cup matches, racking up almost 4,000 minutes of football (TransferMarkt).

The youngster even added some attacking flair to his game by recording one goal and two assists throughout the league season (TransferMarkt).

However, Skipp will not be making it 46 out of 46 games for the Canaries this season after he picked up that metatarsal fracture last time out.

Despite this, he will walk away from his loan spell with a Champions medal after helping Norwich to secure promotion back to the Premier League.

Tottenham claimed that Skipp will now undergo a ‘period of recovery’ and is expected to make a return to first-team training during pre-season.
