Former Tottenham Hotspur player Paul Stewart believes that Oliver Skipp will get his chance in a Spurs shirt this season.

The 20-year-old defensive midfielder spent last season on loan at where he helped Daniel Farke’s side win promotion to the Premier League.

Skipp featured in all but one of the Canaries Championship matches, scoring once and setting up two goals in the process, with Stewart impressed with the youngster’s performances and confirming he can feature in the Spurs first-team.

“Yeah, he is definitely someone who can (feature in the first team).

“I think he was Norwich’s outstanding player to help them get into the Premiership,” Stewart told TIF.

“He definitely proved in the Championship that he’s head and shoulders above what was in there and was Norwich player of the year,  for me anyway.”

Upon returning to Tottenham, the England international had to undergo surgery to fix a metatarsal fracture, with the Tottenham club website confirming that after a period of recuperation he will return to pre-season training.

After some eye-catching performances in a Norwich shirt and helping them clinch the Championship title, Skipp will hope to impress new Spurs manager when he returns and feature in the first-team next season.
