Jose Mourinho has revealed Oliver Skipp wants to leave Tottenham on loan next season after committing his long-term future to the club.
Skipp has made just nine appearances across all competitions so far this season, so to some his willingness to pen a new deal may have come as a surprise.
But at just 19, the midfielder has plenty of room to improve and become a more significant part of the first-team picture.
And according to Mourinho, Skipp wants to continue his development by playing elsewhere next season, gaining what could turn out to be vital experience in a team he can play for more often.

Word comes from the London Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick, who attended Mourinho’s press conference on Friday afternoon. He also relayed Mourinho tipping Skipp as a potential Tottenham captain of the future.
Hopefully Spurs can find the right club for Skipp to aid his development properly.
