A lot of Spurs fans are delighted by this update and they believe that Skipp is better than Harry Winks.

Winks’ future has come into question at Spurs already, with clubs in Spain interested in the Englishman. He has also been linked with a move to Manchester United and Man City in the past.

So if Winks does leave, Skipp could come in and play some first-team football and potentially replace the 25-year-old.
